Prepare for the 4th: Six Tips to Prevent Lost Pets This Holiday

 

In the U.S., July 4th is a day of celebration with BBQ’s, block parties and my favorite … the fireworks.

Unfortunately, our pets don’t share the same fondness for the holiday.  The hot dogs and chips that fall on the ground are great but …
The fireworks can be utterly terrifying for our pets.

According to the American Humane Society more pets will run away from home on July 4th, frightened and afraid, than any other night of the year.

To keep Fluffy and Fido safe, and more importantly at home where they belong, follow these 3 simple steps:

  1. Look for signs of stress or anxiety in your pet. (Here are the top 8 signs)
  2. Keep your pets home and inside, sheltered from the loud noises.  ESPECIALLY if normal loud noises upset them (slamming doors, screaming children, etc.)
  3. Make sure that some form of identification is securely affixed to your pet’s collar.
