Pet Safety Tips for 4th of July

Make this Independence Day fun and SAFE for your pets! Some people love big gatherings and loud noises - but that can be very frightening for our pets.

Here are some Pet Safety Tips for Independence Day:

PLAN AHEAD Make sure your pet is microchipped and that the registration has your current address. In addition, make sure your dog is wearing a license tag. These two simple steps help us reunite families if a pet does get lost.

KEEP PETS INDOORS Keep your pets inside. If you are having guests over, keep pets in a room that is off-limits to guests, with plenty of water and food.

CREATE A CALMING ENVIRONMENT Surround pets with their favorite toys and other familiar objects. Play soothing music and keep the room as quiet as possible by closing doors, windows and blinds.

KEEP AWAY FROM FIREWORKS Even if your pet does not seem obviously upset by fireworks, they can still cause harm to pets. Avoid potential burns, injuries, or possible ingestion by keeping all pets out of the vicinity of fireworks.
