With the approaching holiday we wanted to talk about 4th of July safety as it concerns your pets. Independence Day is one holiday that can have many negative effects on animals -from the anxiety caused by fireworks, to upset stomach due to stolen BBQ treats.
There are several precautionary measures you can take in order to help your pet through the holiday with little to no upset. For starters, keeping your pet inside during firework shows can greatly reduce the chance of escape, as we see a dramatic increase in lost pets at this time. We also strongly recommend double checking (or getting if you do not have one!) a microchip for your pet. This month only, we are offering 15% off microchipping!
If your pet has a strong noise aversion we recommend a product called Sileo. It’s a gentle anti-anxiety prescription that we have stocked up on for those extra sensitive patients. Please call for an appointment if this is one of your pets!!
If you have any questions or concerns about the upcoming holiday please don’t hesitate to call!!
