Dog Safety Tips for Memorial Day
May 14, 2014 | Donner, safety, Truckee, Veterinary
Like many Americans, you may be planning a festive Memorial Day, complete with barbecue and fireworks. It’s important to remember, fireworks and dogs don't mix.
Unlike people, dogs won’t associate the noise, flashes, and burning smell of pyrotechnics with a celebration. Fireworks will often cause panic and anxiety in dogs. It’s important to remember that dogs panic at the sound of fireworks and flee into the night, often winding up lost, injured, or killed.
- Keep your pet indoors at all times, if possible.
- Use Pet Friendly Repellent.
- Don’t give your pet table food.
