Keep Pets Safe and Happy on July Fourth

Keep your pets inside on the night of July 4th. Anytime the fireworks are going off, keep them in and give them a Kong filled with peanut butter. It is like a puzzle with food in it, the pet has to figure it out.

There are calming aids that can be given to dogs and cats.

Doc Roy's Docile Dog - This is a natural product. This calms anxious dogs down. Comfort Zone with DAP for dogs is also a good product.

Feliway for cats is a good calming product for cats.

I would start a few days before July 4, and go on a few days afterward. Start earlier if there are more fireworks earlier than this.

The reason you want to calm them and give them toys that are hard to figure out, such as Kongs, is that they could easily become anxious over any loud noise and this would make them nervous. July 4 is very traumatic for a dog or cat who is afraid. Most of them are. Talking and scolding do not do any good and can cause harm.

I occasionally buy things I need from these sites. They are great, and I trust them for ordering online.
