Explosions and loud noises freak animals out and they will run for safety. Unfortunately, they can’t always find their way back home. Please take a little time to make sure that your pets are safe and secure this 4th of July.
Unexpected sounds of fireworks cause stress and anxiety for a lot of pets. 45% of dogs have a firework phobia. However, with the right training, you can help your dog to become more confident during firework season.
Some tips to do during the 4th of July fireworks:
- If you started early with them by getting them used to listen to the loud sounds of the fireworks that will be helpful for them. You can do that through specific CDs or videos on YouTube, by carefully controlling the volume. Make sure your pets noticed the sound and by the time they will get used to it.
- You can create a special space in your house to be safe and quiet for your pet, so they can access it whenever they want.
- There are medications that safely can reduce anxiety for your pets, to make them aware of the noise but less able to physically respond to it. At Nohl Ranch Animal hospital we will help you choose the right and safe medication for your beloved pet, so you can enjoy the 4th of July fireworks.
- Try to change how your pet feels when hearing the fireworks by either feed them their favorite food or play their favorite game.
