Pet safety on Firework night. Some people love them, but animals hate them! Follow our simple tips on making fireworks night less frightening for your pet. Cats and Dogs

  • Mare sure they have somewhere to hide if they want to.

  • Walk your dog during the daylight hours and keep cats and dogs indoors when fireworks are likely.

  • Close the windows and curtains and put on music or keep your TV on to hide the sounds of fireworks.

  • Make sure your pet cannot escape. Frightened animals can bolt if there is a sudden noise. Ensure you have microchipped them just in case and that the details are up to date!

  • If your dog is particularly nervous then seek help from your local Vet before fireworks night.

Small animals

  • If your pet lives outside then cover the cage with a blanket or tarpaulin but remember to leave a large enough opening to let plenty of air circulate.

  • Provide lots of bedding so that they can dig into it and hide if they want to.
