Firework Safety for Pets

During the summer, holidays and other celebrations often call for fireworks. While they can be entertaining, they can also be dangerous and scary for pets. At TLC Animal Hospital in El Paso, TX, our veterinarian will help you keep your pet safe and healthy. Here are a few tips for pet wellness during fireworks season.

Keep Your Pet Secure

If your pet will be exposed to fireworks, you'll want to keep it secure. Pets often try to run or hide when they hear loud noises. You can keep your pet secure by keeping it on a leash the entire time that you are outside. When you need to keep it secured at home, prepare your yard or a crate for your pet.

Change Routine Times

Even if you keep your pet inside, the noise from the fireworks might make your pet feel uneasy. The best way to handle this is to feed and walk your pet before it will be exposed to fireworks noises. Otherwise, the noise might upset your animal too much for it to want to eat or do its business.

Make Your Pet Comfortable

Your pet won't understand why it is hearing loud noises. The best way to soothe your pet when scared or intimidated is to create a comfortable and cozy environment for it. This not only means providing it with a secure space to retreat to, but it also means surrounding your pet with the people it loves. Those who are familiar to your pet will act as a human comfort zone until the fireworks are completed.

Play Calming Music

One of the best ways to mask the noise of fireworks is to play music that will drown out the noises. In addition to playing music, consider closing any doors or curtains in rooms where your pets like to spend time. The combination of both may be so effective they don't even realize fireworks are being set off.
