Pet safety on the 4th of July

BY SHELLY DUNN
ANIMAL SHELTERS REPORT THAT THE 5TH OF JULY IS THEIR BUSIEST DAY EVER.  WHY?  YOUR DOG CAN BE FRIGHTENED BY THE SOUND OF FIREWORKS IN YOUR CITY.  THEY HAVE MUCH MORE SENSITIVE HEARING THAN WE DO AND THE LOUD BLASTS CAN SIMPLY MAKE THEM WANT TO GET AWAY FROM THE NOISE.



THE BEST ADVICE, OTHER THAN STAYING HOME AND LETTING THEM SNUGGLE WITH YOU, IS TO KEEP THEM IN AN ESCAPE PROOF AREA.  IF YOU ARE LEAVING YOUR DOG OUTSIDE, HOPEFULLY, YOU HAVE A DOGGY DOOR FOR THEM TO GO INSIDE IF THEY BECOME SCARED OF THE BLASTS.  IF YOU ARE LEAVING YOUR DOG INSIDE, TURN ON THE TV TO MUFFLE THE NOISE, HAVE A FAVORITE TOY OR BLANKET AVAILABLE.  IF YOUR DOG IS KEPT BUSY BY A KONG OR OTHER TOY, LEAVE THAT FOR THEM AS WELL.



MICRO CHIP  YOUR DOG IN CASE THEY END UP IN A SHELTER.  HAVE YOUR IDENTIFICATION ON A TAG ON YOUR DOGS COLLAR IN CASE THEY END UP AT A NEIGHBORS HOUSE.

MOST OF ALL, HAVE A GREAT 4TH OF JULY CELEBRATION BUT MAKE IT GREAT FOR YOUR DOG AS WELL!


                                                 HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!!!
