Pet owners know their furry friends can be easily spooked by Fourth of July fireworks. Keep your pet safe with these tips:
• Leave your pet at home and indoors where they can’t run away when you go to a noisy party.
• Give your pet a “safe spot,” such as their kennel or a closet, where they can go to hide from the fireworks.
• In the event that your pet does escape, make sure that they are wearing identification tags.
• Lit fireworks can cause severe burns, and unlit fireworks contain potentially toxic substances if ingested. Keep both away from curious pets.
