Keep Your Pets Safe at Home During July 4th Fireworks

Tomorrow commemorates 4th of July. Whether your community is celebrating a splendor of delights or throwing  a huge fireworks display, make sure to keep your pets safe. Sadly, more pets go missing around 4th of July, than at any other time of the year. And, noisy fireworks are to blame. Our pets can become panic-stricken by the noise and run away to find refuge. 

Safety tips for 4th July

1. It’s important to keep your dog on a leash if you are out and about. A dog’s first response to loud noise is to run. The shelters report that 4th of July is the busiest time of the year for rescues. 
 
2. There are medications that will reduce anxiety if dogs on the market. We carry Rescue Remedy, which is holistic and comes as a liquid. A few drops will help enormously with anxiety. 
 
3. And lastly, there are ways to help your dog become comfortable for the future. Gradually introduce loud noises. You can play music, even fireworks on TV. Eventually, your dog will become used to different levels of noise. 
 
All of us at Shaggy Chic Pet Boutique wish everyone a Happy and Safe 4th of July.
