having a Safe and Happy Holiday!

Take extra safety precautions this Fourth of July and your holiday will be a blast!
patriotic_cat.jpgAnimal shelters around the nation report a dramatic increase in lost pets during the holiday because so many pets are frightened and try to escape the sights and sounds of fireworks.

Help your pets keep their cool by following these 4 easy steps:

1. Keep your pets safely away from fireworks.  Pets are more sensitive to loud noises, flashing lights and strong smells so, on the Fourth of July, it's best to leave your pets safely indoors, preferably with a radio or TV turned on to hide jarring noises.

2. If your pets are scared by fireworks, ask a veterinarian for help. There are medications and techniques that might help alleviate your pets' fear and anxiety. 

3. Protect your pets from heat stroke during summer festivities.  Never leave your pets in a parked car and make sure they have plenty of water to drink. 

4. Safeguard your pets with a collar and I.D. tag.  All pets, even those kept indoors full-time, should always wear collars with ID tags.
