The 4th of July is notoriously stressful for pets and, unfortunately, not a year goes by where we do not hear of lost pets as a result. Consider the following tips in order to minimize stress surrounding this day for both you and your pet. Plan out your day beforehand
and consider where your dog or cat will be during these times. If your day is planned ahead of time you can minimize commotion and prepare for potential stressors for your pets. Avoid feeding your pet table scraps.
Foods that are rich, fatty, or outside of your pet's normal diet can be harmful. During holiday times we sometimes see cases of gastroenteritis or pancreatitis increase as a result of this. Check your pet's IDs
! Is their microchip registered with your current information? Do their external ID tags have the appropriate phone number? Keep them confined
. The safest place for your pet during this time is inside your home. If you have a cat who lives both indoor and outdoor consider keeping them inside a few days before the holiday since celebrations can take place early and you cannot reliably confine them at a moment's notice. The crate can be a great tool for dogs and can actually help minimize their stress during this time. Reflect upon your pet's stress level
and consider what actions or tools you can use to effectively help them. For some pets, simple anti-anxiety tools or medications combined with the right environment can make a world of difference. Some pets require sedation during fireworks time in order to be truly comfortable.
Don't forget that Moorpark fireworks take place at 9pm on July 3rd. Please contact us and we will be happy to discuss keeping your pet safe and happy during this holiday time. If you are unsure if your pet's microchip is registered with your current information you can click here
to register your pet's microchip for a one-time lifetime registration fee or to change your info at no charge if previously registered.
