Protect Your BFF(Best Furry Friend) on Independence Day!

1. Never use fireworks around petsMany pets are afraid of fireworks and can get hurt if they are exposed to them. Fireworks contain dangerous chemicals

2. Keep the pets at home or in a kennel if you're traveling far - If your 4th consists of   traveling out of town, you should leave your pet at home or in a kennel.

3. Keep alcoholic beverages away from your pets—According to the ASPCA, alcoholic beverages have the potential to poison pets.

4. Don't apply any sunscreen or insect repellent on pets that aren't specifically made for animalsIf it's consumed by the animal, it can make the pet feel ill and cause vomiting, diarrhea, drooling, and lethargy.

5. Leave the pets at home for the fireworks display—Pets do not like fireworks. Make sure they have access to their favorite spot or get them a ThunderShirt. If you need help calming your pet down, give a call to your local veterinarian.

6. Horses should be kept away from 4th of July parties - Like most pets, horses don't like the sound of fireworks, either. Keep them in a securely fenced area far away from the festivities.

7. Don't give your pet "table food"It's cute to get a photo of your dog chewing on a freshly grilled hamburger for your Instagram, but food like chocolate and beer can be super harmful to pets.

8. Heat stroke can also harm your pets - It's important to keep your pets cool during the Fourth of July fun. Never leave your pet in a hot car and  be aware of  just some of the warning signs of heat stroke such as    excessive drooling or frequent breaks lying down.

9. Tiki Torch oil and citronella candles should be kept away from petsTiki torches may make your backyard barbeque look great, but if ingested by pets they can cause severe harm. If inhaled, it could cause   pneumonia or neurological damage.

10. If your pet escapes your home, be preparedMake sure your pet’s ID badges are up to date have your pet microchipped so they can easily be found. 

By following these tips, hopefully fewer families will feel the heartbreak of losing a pet during the July 4th holiday.
