DOGGONE’IT…FIREWORKS CAN BE SCARY!

DOGGONE’IT…FIREWORKS CAN BE SCARY!

Animal care agencies across Wisconsin urge pet owners to take extra precautions to help calm their pet’s fear of fireworks. 

Statistics reveal at least 40-percent of dogs have a noise phobia which can include power tools or thunderstorms but fireworks are a common source of distress.  Cats are not immune when it comes to a fear of fireworks so experts advise taking the dog for a good long walk before dark and spending a little extra play time with the cat so both burn off energy which can reduce anxiety. 

Providing new toys and long-lasting chews for distraction and finding the quietest room possible for them will also help manage a pet’s anxiety.
