Keep Your Pet Safe this 4th of JulyWhat's not to love about the 4th of July? As humans we get to enjoy an extra day off work, barbecues, time at the lake, fun in the sun and fireworks! But for our furry friends the 4th of July is often the most stressful day of the year for them. In fact, more pets get lost on the 4th of July than any other day of the year.

Before you head out to that barbecue or out to enjoy the fireworks make sure you check out these tips to keep your four-legged companion safe this 4th of July weekend:


1. Do not bring your pet out with you to watch firework displays or to 4th of July celebrations where you know there will fireworks!
2. Keep your pet safely secured inside an escape-proof part of your home. Dogs left in yards or left alone in homes find ways to escape fences and even break through windows to escape the scary sounds.
3. Help cover up the sound of the fireworks through soothing music, noise machines or the TV.
4. Keep them busy and comfortable. Provide your pet with treats and toys to distract them and setup a comfortable, safe space for them to hide.
5. Just in case, make sure your pet has an updated license, ID tag and microchip – this could be their ticket home!
6. Skip the celebration and stay home with your pet to comfort them during this stressful weekend.
7. If your pet's fearful or stressful reaction to the fireworks is extreme or concerns you, visit your veterinarian.
If the celebratory weekend proves to be too much for your pet and they do escape, Animal Protection and Control is available to help. You can reach us at (970) 226-3647 ext. 7. Let's make it a Happy 4th of July for both people and pets!
