It’s nearly that time of year again! Bonfire night is generally something to look forward to, but if your pet has a firework phobia you might already be dreading it. Don’t forget that there are lots of steps you can take to help your pet cope with all the fuss.
• Prepare as early as possible. Speak to the family about useful methods for your pet.
• With a little time, sound desensitisation therapy can help reduce your pet’s fears.
• Pheromone treatments can • help your pet manage stressful situations.
• Special diets or supplements • can help to maintain a calm state in the lead up to the festivities.
Medication is sometimes useful in the short term for severe phobias.
On the night, ensure your pet can get to a place they feel safe and try to act as normally as possible. Avoid fussing over them if you can.
