Keep Your Pets Safe Over The Fourth

Keep Your Pets Safe Over The Fourth

A local Animal Services person interviewed on TV stated  that July 5 is the busiest day the year for their organization. It is the day lostanimals are brought in and distraught owners visit looking for their dogs and cats. Avoid this situation, you don’t want to be one of those people and you sure don’t want your best buddies to be those animals.

Here’s some tips to Keep Your Pets Safe Over The Fourth

  • Keep your pets inside with the windows closed: the fireworks noise level will be lower. Maybe keep the TV on low (or the radio, my cat is afraid of the radio but not the TV, go figure).
  • Definitely do not put glow jewelry on your pets, or allow them to play with it. the substance can cause excessive drooling and/or gastrointestinal problems.
  • Always keep citronella products (candles, insect coils), out of your pet’s reach. These cause stomach irritation or even central nervous system depression.  Resulting in aspiration pneumonia. 
  • Never use fireworks around pets. Lit fireworks are a potential source of burns or face trauma. But unlit fireworks are hazardous too. They contain potentially toxic substances like potassium nitrate, arsenic and other dangerous chemicals. 
  • And, DO NOT take your pet to a fireworks display. The crowds and noise can cause them untold distress and trauma. Consequently, they may try to break free (and succeed) from their leash. And off they go.
  • Finally, if the worst happens, make sure you have had your best friend (dog or cat) micro-chipped in advance to make it easier all around.

Have a safe and happy July 4th!
