Please be aware of your pets behavior during fireworks. They may become very scared and want to hide or run away. Make sure all doors are closed and help them find a cozy quiet spot to calm them. Your pet may become aggressive or anxious. Watch for tremors, panting, salivating, defecating in the home, depression, shortness of breath, destructive behavior or pacing.
Here are a few things you can do in the home to help ease your pets stress:
1. Take them for an extra long walk during the day so they tire more easily at night when the fireworks go off.
2. Cuddle them and help them feel safe.
3. Try a weighted blanket or vest to help ease anxiety.
4. Turn the music or tv up to drown out the sounds from outside.
