New Year’s Eve Pet Safety Tips

1. Keep dogs and cats indoors

If you must let the dog out for a bathroom break, monitor them closely by keeping them on a leash. Make sure the collar is fitted and there is no chance of escape if they become frightened by the sounds of fireworks. 

2. Exercise pets during the day

Take your dog for a lengthy run or stroll. Play with cats for up to 30 minutes or longer. Pets are more inclined to slumber or rest throughout the celebrations if they are exhausted.

3. Not To Feed Your Pets Food Or Alcohol

Make sure if your pets interact with party guests that everyone knows not to feed your pets food or alcohol. This may seem self-explanatory, but some people may not be aware of the dangers of such behavior.

4. Keep dogs and cats in a familiar, cozy area

Try playing soothing music in the room to drown out the sound of fireworks. If you have both dogs and cats, you may want to separate them in different rooms.
