The 4th of July is a favorite summer holiday, complete with BBQs, burgers, and time well spent with family and friends.
However, it’s not all sun and fun for the four-legged members of our families. It’ll come as no shock to pet parents that many dogs and cats (as well as other animals) are terrified of fireworks.
This fear of fireworks can become quite dangerous when pets run off from home, overwhelmed by fright. In fact, lost pets increase 30 percent between July 4-6, with July 5th as the busiest day of the year for many animal shelters as they work to reunite lost pets with stressed out caregivers.
In an effort to keep canines safe this 4th of July, our friends at K9 of Mine have released a new infographic providing tips on how to keep your pup safe and happy during fireworks.
