Some ideas how to keep your pets safe this Bonfire Night...
Walk them during daylight hours to avoid times when fireworks are likely to be set off
Close windows and curtains to muffle the sound of fireworks
Put on some music or tv to mask the firework sounds
Create a quiet space where your dog can feel in control
Create some hiding places around your home
Partly cover outside cages and pens with blankets so an area is soundproofed and hidden, but allow another area for the animals to look out
Provide bedding small animals can burrow in
Consider bringing them indoors – this will need to be done gradually so plan ahead.
Provide hiding places in your home
Cats can become more stressed if they’re outside during fireworks
Microchip your cats in case they’re startled and escape outside.
