Fireworks Can Be Distressing for Pets; Experts Recommend Leaving the Dogs at Home

dogleather-thumbThe loud noises and flashing lights of a fireworks display can be distressing for pets. That said, it is recommended that during the Fourth of July fireworks display (to be over Big Bear Lake after dark tomorrow), you leave your pets at home and indoors. Dog experts at HomeoPet.com say that fireworks, and loud noises, can be interpreted by canines as threatening, so they may try to escape, so be sure that your pet has the proper tags and identification in case they do run away or get lost. If leaving your pet at home during the fireworks, it is also recommended that curtains or shades are drawn, if the fireworks are viewable.
