The evening skies may be filled with beautiful arrays of fireworks this week to celebrate Independence Day, but the noise generated could pose stressful to animals. Pets often become frightened or disoriented by the sounds of fireworks. Dr. Jordan Kobilca of Door County Veterinary Hospital says the best thing to do is to leave your furry friends at home before heading out to enjoy the fireworks. If you need to bring your pet along, Dr. Kobilca has some advice.
Dr. Kobilca says if you are entertaining at your home you should keep your pets away from the actual fireworks. He says in additional to the burns and trauma that fireworks cause, the chemicals in the fireworks are harmful as well.
