Don’t Let Pets Stress from Fireworks

By: The Humane Society of Greater Dayton

Independence Day is just around the corner, and with it comes a big fear for many pets – the loud booms and flashes of fireworks.

Don’t let your pets fill with anxiety as you are out celebrating the Fourth of July. Schedule a Wellness Exam with the Dayton Humane Veterinary Hospital today by calling (937) 965-4399. Space is filling up quickly, so call soon to schedule an appointment so that we can get your pets in before the holiday.

Our veterinarians can examine your pet and, in some cases, even prescribe medication that can help alleviate some of the stresses that come along with fireworks. If your pet is not microchipped, we can also do that during their exam to ensure that if they were to run away, they could easily be reunited with you when their chip is scanned.

There are home remedies you can do such as creating a safe, quiet space for your pet or playing white noise to dilute the booms, but if your pet gets overly anxious about things such as fireworks or thunderstorms, then we recommend working with your veterinarian. We all want your pets to be resting easy and relaxing leading up to the holiday.

The Dayton Humane Veterinary Hospital is a full-service animal hospital run by the Humane Society of Greater Dayton. They provide a variety of health and wellness services for the owned pets in our community and are devoted to ensuring all animals are healthy and receiving the care they deserve.  Financial assistance is also available for those in need. To schedule an appointment with our veterinarian, call us today at (937) 965-4399 or visit www.hsdayton.org/exam to schedule a time for your pet’s appointment.
