We will be closed for the 4th of July on Friday and will re-open on Saturday with normal hours 8-12 noon.
With July 4th well on it’s way, a firework show can be a very frightening event for your pet. With all the bright lights and loud, unpredictable noises your pet can be easily overwhelmed and experience anxiety. If you are aware of this sort of reaction to fireworks, give us a call and we can exam your pet to better recommend options prior to the upcoming holiday. If this anxiety comes unexpectedly, stay calm, dogs are very aware of your body language, act as though everything is normal. For dogs that are extremely afraid of fireworks, provide a safe and familiar environment for sleeping. The safest place is his crate. In the room where the crate is located, close the windows and drapes to keep out both noise and flashes of light. Provide some background noise, the TV, radio or by air conditioner, to drown out the booming fireworks. It’s not likely to completely prevent your dog’s fear of fireworks but you can definitely help ease the intensity of your dog’s reaction to them. Hope this 4th is a happy one for both you and your pets!
