For us humans bonfire night is a lot of fun with all the fairs, fireworks and parties but for pets is can be quick distressing.
To help your pets stay calm during this period we have created a few simple tips which can help reduce the stress in all
all animals and make them more comfortable.
Our 7 Bonfire Night Pet Tips
1. Try giving your pet a little more food than usual to settle them early
A little extra food will help them feel more comfortable and help put them in a good mood. The more comfortable
they feel the more likely they wont react to the noises.
2. Take your dog for a long walk or exercise your pet during the day well before the fireworks start
Exercise during the day ensures that you wont be walking around at night with the fireworks going off which would increase
the chances of your pet becoming stressed. It will also tire them early, increasing the likelihood of them finding a
quiet spot to sleep.
3. Secure all doors, windows and cat/dog flaps as pets have a tendency to run when spooked
Create a safe environment for your pet where you can keep an eye on them so you can monitor their beaviour and ensure they
are comfortable. If they get spooked you can find them easily and help them relax as best as possible.
