Safeguard your pet from fireworks

Keep your pets safe and secure indoors

Avoid your pet escaping the fenced boundary as this puts them at greater risk of getting accidentally knocked.

Keep them busy

Keep your cat or day busy by giving them treats and toys to play with; this will act as a distraction to the loud bangs of fireworks being discharged outdoors.

Mask the noise

Fireworks are at least two times louder with dogs and cats than it is to us as humans.

Calming music or even a TV programme at a reasonable volume can mask the loud noise of discharging fireworks.

Update their ID tags

If your pet wears a ID tag around their neck, just in case of an emergency if it is updated early enough your pet will be able to be easily reunited with you.

Safe place

If you have a spare room draw the curtains and make it cosy and comfortable just for them. A box with a fluffy blanket might also work.

Skip the celebration

If you know your pets suffer from extreme anxiety skip celebrating and spend time with them or speak to your vet beforehand to prescribe something to calm your pet.
