Help pets during the 4th of July
Hope everybody has a safe Fourth of July.
Recommendations for the animals to have a safe Fourth of July as well:
1) Make sure to feed them slightly early to take them on a very long satisfying walk minimum of 1 hour prior to firework display. (As long as it is not too hot)
2) Since we are all at home, we can go ahead and stay with our pets this year instead of running off to parties. Just because we may be having some festivities of our own, do not give them anything from the table especially pork products & corn on the cob.
3) If they have anxiety, put them in the lowest part of the home and/or a darkened area with music playing loud enough to drown out some of the noise.
4) Give them something to do, if you have a Kong toy you can put some frozen peanut butter inside or some type of a Frozen treat which takes a longer duration of time for them to get it out.
5) If any of the animals are on medications to help with their anxiety are there stress make sure to have given those as directed by your veterinarian.
6) Recommendation is not to take the pets outside to see the pretty fireworks that go off since they feel the concussions from the firework explosion. We do not want our animals to run off during this time and get lost or get hurt. The safest place for them is in the home.
