Fireworks & Pets

Firework Fear

Remember remember the 5th of November along with all the other dates that fireworks are set off! Unfortunately 5th November is not the only night our pets have to cope with fireworks! They can run on till New Year!

Many pets have a fear of fireworks and loud noises. But there are a few ways you can help your pet feel more secure during these times of stress.

Environmental changes can play an important part in helping your pet cope i.e providing a den/covered safe area where your pet can hide and feel safe like under stairs or a crate covered with a blanket, staying calm and keeping your pet indoor are just a few of the things which can be helpful.

There are also safe products available from us such as plug-ins, sprays, collars and capsules containing natural products that are known to promote relaxation. These products need to be in place sometime before the scary events take place.

If you would like more information on helping your pet cope with Fireworks give us a call to book an appointment!

DVS strive to use our expertise and experience to provide the best value veterinary service available locally and to provide the highest level of up to date treatment and compassionate service that we would expect for our own pets.
