How to keep your pets happy during the firework season:
The best way to prepare for fireworks is to think like a dog.
They feel scared as they are alarmed by the loud noises of the fireworks but do not understand that fireworks cannot harm them and feel safer when they have a hiding space.
There are a number of products available that are designed to help reduce the stress of fireworks for your dog, one in particular is ADAPTIL.
Plug in an ADAPTIL Diffuser close to your dog’s den or fit an ADAPTIL Collar on your dog. ADAPTIL is a synthetic copy of the dog appeasing pheromone proven to help dogs cope with fireworks.
ADAPTIL products are available in our clinics, or for more advice call us on 01234 261622
