Look after your pets during the fireworks season

The fireworks season is about to kick-off. The loud bangs and pretty lights can be fun for us, but with their acute hearing, many pets, of all sizes, find firework noise and flashes frightening.

Here are some helpful tips to make firework celebrations less frightening for your pets.

  • Make sure your dog or cat always has somewhere to hide if he or she wants to and has access to this place at all times. For example this could be under some furniture or in a cupboard.

  • During firework seasons, walk dogs during daylight hours and keep cats and dogs indoors when fireworks are likely to be set off.

  • At nightfall close windows and curtains and put on music to mask and muffle the sound of fireworks.

  • Never punish or fuss over your pet when it's scared as this will only make things worse in the long run.

  • Make sure your cat or dog is always kept in a safe and secure environment and can't escape if there's a sudden noise. Have your pet microchipped in case they do escape. 

  • Never ever take a dog to a fireworks display even if they dont make noise it's still highly likely to be a stressful situation for them.

Don't forget small animals 

  • If your pets live outside, partly cover cages, pens and aviaries with blankets so that one area is well sound-proofed. Make sure that your pet is still able to look out. 

  • Provide lots of extra bedding so your pet has something to burrow in.

He is looking for a loving home on the quieter side where he can chill out and snuggle up with someone. He needs to be the only pet of the household.
