Many of our pets can find bonfire night very scary!

Nearly 50% of pets show signs of stress when they hear loud bangs and flashes.

Here are some simple tips to help your pet get through the night.

1 – Don’t walk them after dark. Try to get then out in daylight hours when the risk of a firework going off is minimal.

2 – Close the windows and curtains.  This will help muffle the noise.

3 – Put the TV or radio on.  This will also help minimise outdoor noises

4 – Make sure your pet has somewhere safe to hide. If they have a cage, put a blanket over it.

5 – Make sure your pet is in a space in the house where they feel safe and comfortable.

If you prepare beforehand you can help your pet with their fears.
