While Independence Day can be a festive time for people, pets often don’t feel the same. Even well-behaved animals may panic at loud noises and run away.
Officials recommend leaving your pets at home during fireworks displays, but also taking the following precautions:
• Keep pets indoors and create a safe haven for them in a quiet part of your home. Make sure they have food, water, bedding and a few favorite toys (include a litter box for cats).
