FREE VET CONSULTS FOR FIREWORKS - Expired: 31/12/2016
FIREWORKS – DON’T LET YOUR DOG SUFFER NEEDLESSLY
The fireworks season lasts from late October to New year these days with Guy Fawkes night usually lasting a couple of weeks followed by sporadic bursts until a spectacular finale at New year. Unfortunately, it’s a rubbish time of year for many dogs and cats (and let’s not forget rabbits and guinea pigs out in the garden) who are petrified of the bangs and flashes. Some dogs in particular are very fearful and will cower under the bed or destroy the sofa as a consequence.
Remember if your dog is fearful enough to be trembling, hiding away or being needy he or she is having a terrible time.
George says “We hate to think of all these terrified dogs and cats. There are some simple steps that pet owners can take such as only walking their dogs early in the day, keeping cats indoors and keeping the curtains drawn in the evening. However, there is much more that can be done too. By preparing in advance, rearranging the house in a certain way and using gentle but effective medicines, we can help pets (and therefore their owners) to have a much less stressful time”.
To make sure everyone gets the best advice, Churchcroft Vets are offering FREE CONSULTATIONS for all pet owners to consider the best way to support their pets during the fireworks season.
