Celebrate the 4th Of July with Fido

(Published on - 6/13/2016 4:36:15 PM)

The 4th of July holiday is typically a time of celebration and family gatherings, but not all members of your family enjoy the activities associated with Independence Day. This holiday can often be a source of stress for our fur-legged family members, with the American Humane Society reporting July 5th as the busiest day of the year for animal shelters. If you are planning a festive Fourth of July gathering, a few simple steps will ensure that all your family members enjoy the backyard barbeque and the fireworks that follow.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) have given us a few simple ways to prevent your holiday celebration from turning into a potential disaster for your pets. Please find below 10 helpful tips on ways you can keep your beloved pet from panicking this Fourth of July holiday.

 Keep your Pet Indoors at All Times!

 It may seem obvious, but even if your pet is used to being outside, the resulting panic caused by fireworks or other loud noises may make them break their restraint or jump a fence in a terrified attempt to find safety.

 Don’t Put Insect Repellant on Your Pet that isn’t Specifically for Pet Use

 The same tip applies to applying “people” sunscreen on your pet. What isn’t toxic to humans can be toxic to animals. The ASPCA lists the poisonous effects of sunscreen on your pet as, “…drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, excessive thirst and lethargy.” DEET, a common insecticide, may cause neurological issues.
