How to Help Your Pet Feel Comfortable During Fireworks

how to help your pet feel comfortable during fireworks

Summer is here. And with it, seasonal celebrations, backyard barbecues, baseball games, community carnivals – and, of course, fireworks. And as they say – everything is bigger in Texas.

Fireworks and other noisy celebrations can be stressful for our pets. Fortunately, there are several strategies you can employ at home to help your dog or cat feel more comfortable during these events – including an overnight stay at a quality pet resort like Four Paws Inn.

  1. Create a Safe Space

Designate a quiet, sheltered area in your home where your pet can retreat. This could be a room away from windows or a cozy spot in the basement. Adding their favorite blanket or toy can make this space more comforting.

  1. Use Calming Aids

Talk to your vet about the possibility of pheromone diffusers or sprays or soothing music specifically designed for pets. These aids can help reduce anxiety and provide a sense of safety.

  1. Maintain a Steady Routine

Try to keep your pet’s daily routine as normal as possible. Consistent feeding times, play, and bedtime can help minimize stress.

  1. Distract and Engage

Provide your pet with puzzles or treat-dispensing toys during noisy events. This distraction can help divert their attention from the noise outside.

  1. Consult Your Veterinarian

If your pet is severely anxious, you may want to consult your veterinarian for additional solutions, including the possibility of medication to help ease their anxiety during particularly loud celebrations.

  1. Collaborate with a Pet Resort

For ultimate peace of mind, consider partnering with a professional pet resort like Four Paws Inn during noisy events, and particularly during local fireworks displays. Resorts like Four Paws Inn tick almost all of the boxes above, providing a secure environment and expert care.
