Independence Day is a little over a week away. While many of us find the sights and sounds exciting, fireworks can cause panic and anxiety for our furry family members.

The Fourth of July is here. The holiday and the days leading up to it are sure to be full of picnics, fun and fireworks! While many of us find the sights and sounds exciting, fireworks and other elements of our celebrations may frighten cats and dogs, causing them to panic and escape the confines of a yard or even the house.

To help protect pets during the festivities, here are some tips for pet owners:

Keep your pet indoors during fireworks celebrations in a quiet, isolated room with covered windows, such as a bathroom, or a basement where there are no windows. Turn on a fan, radio or TV to muffle the sound of fireworks. These devices provide familiar indoor sounds and may help soothe your pet if he must be alone on this noisy holiday.

Don’t bring your pet to a fireworks display.

If you know from experience that your pet will suffer from severe anxiety caused by the loud noise of fireworks, consider talking with your veterinarian in advance about giving your pet a mild tranquilizer.

If your pet behaves nervously by pacing, whining or crying, try playing with her as a distraction or doing something she enjoys.

Make sure your pet always wears an appropriately fitted collar and an I.D. tag with your current phone number and address. Your pet should also be wearing a current license/rabies tag.

You may want to talk with your veterinarian about providing your pet with a microchip identification implant in case your pet loses his collar and tags. And if your pet already has a microchip, make sure the contact information is up to date.

If you find a lost pet, take it to your nearest animal shelter. You can also place a “found” ad in your local paper, on websites like Finding Rover, Next Door, Facebook or Craigslist and post notices around your neighborhood.

If your pet does go missing, check the website of the shelter closest to you, then check our Lost & Found page to look for your lost pet. Additionally, follow these tips to give your pet the best chance of returning home quickly and safely.
