That all sounds great to us, but what about our pets? Pets may be included in our festivities, however, many pets don’t like loud noises. We’ve come up with a handful of suggestions to keep your pet happy and safe on Independence Day:

  • Leave your pet at home inside
  • Provide a safe area with a radio or TV on to drown out loud noises
  • Keep any alcohol and table scraps away from our furry family members
  • Make sure your pet has a collar and their microchip is up-to-date with your current phone and address information
  • Keep pets away from grills, matches and lighter fluid
  • NEVER set off fireworks around pets
  • Be sure to have your veterinary’s information handy
  • Be familiar with the nearest 24 hour emergency pet clinic
