Fourth of July fireworks can be stressful for your pet. Here are a few reminders to help.
ThunderShirts provide a gentle, constant pressure to comfort for your dog, like swaddling a baby. A small quiet room such as a bathroom with a fan or the shower running is a safe space when the fireworks start. Take your pup outside to do its business before the onslaught of fireworks. Because of their sensitive hearing, dogs can become overwhelmed and try to flee to avoid the noise. Homeopet's non-sedating calmative for loud noises, TFLN, can be given before the fireworks begin to calm your dog, cat, rabbit, bird or other small animal.
Make certain your pet has a current identification tag and is secured before he has the chance to bolt. If your dog or cat gets out and lost contact your veterinarian and microchip company. They can flag your dog or cat as "lost" on their digital microchip information to help you retrieve your pet quickly. Use social media such as Facebook, Craigslist and Nextdoor to post a message. We can also post for a lost pet on our Pet Board in the store. Walk through the neighborhood. Most pets don't go far, but they might be hiding.
Come see us today at All About Pets, where we can help you find what you're looking for to keep your pets safe and calm allowing you to kick back and have fun this July 4th.
