With Independence Day fast approaching, are you prepared to protect your pet from the anxiety and injuries that can come with exposure to fireworks?
Fireworks are Noisy!
While most humans enjoy the lights and sounds of a fireworks display, many pets experience the noise as unnerving or even terrorizing.
If you think your pet may be afraid of fireworks, see our recently updated post about how to diagnose and treat your pet’s noise anxiety.
Order Anti-Anxiety Refills Now
If your pet takes a prescription drug to manage anxiety, we encourage you to call in your refill request now to make sure we have the drug you need in stock and are able to dispense it well before the fireworks begin.
Fireworks Can Burn!
Lighted fireworks can cause severe burns and trauma to the face and paws of a curious pet. Keep your pet safely away from the area where fireworks are being ignited.
Fireworks Can Be Swallowed!
Unlit fireworks can be swallowed, obstructing your pet’s digestive tract and introducing potentially toxic substances, including potassium nitrate, arsenic and other heavy metals. Make sure any fireworks you’ve purchased for your celebration are stored safely out of reach of pets (and children).
