Fourth of July Safety Tips

The Fourth of July is a festive, noise holiday filled with good, old-fashioned family fun. For us, humans. For our pets, the Fourth can be both exciting and scary. We have more pet emergencies on the Fourth of July than almost any other holiday! Keep reading to learn how to keep your pets safe this Fourth!

The biggest tip we can give you is to keep your pets calm. A safe, dark, and quiet place can go a long way to keeping your pets safe. If that is not enough, we can always try some relaxation medications (contact your veterinarian for recommendations). Microchipping can be a lifesaver if they do happen to take a midnight stroll.

The Fourth is full of yummy summer treats but a lot of those goodies are not safe for your pet. Icecream, beer, and chocolate are among the top culprits of doggy stomach aches after the Fourth. Keep your pets safe from tummy-killers just like you would those fireworks. Above all, common sense is key. If it makes your pet feel calmer and/or safer, it works for us!
