Remember, Remember The 5th Of November Is Not For Pets!
This bonfire season up to 3 million pets could be affected by the firework celebrations, according to the RSPCA an estimated 45% of dogs in the UK show signs of fear during this period.
We all know the effects fireworks can have on pets but there are simple steps that can be taken to help minimise distress. The RSPCA advise that pets should be kept indoors when fireworks are near including small animals, as it can be an extremely frightening time for them. DAP products can be used prior to and during the fireworks period. DAP products contain the synthetic version of Dog Appeasing Pheromone which is a chemical produced by a bitch shortly after they have given birth. This helps to calm newborn puppies and research has shown it can have the same effect on older dogs. It is advised that dogs are walked during the day to ensure their anxiety and stress levels are minimised in the evening. Zylkene capsules can be used for stress in dogs and cats and they are hypoallergenic, preservative free and lactose free, this product can be used over short or long periods of time. Music can be soothing to pets and can help to drain out noise as pets can hear sounds that are inaudible to humans.
There are many other remedies that can be used to alleviate stress in pets including Dorwest Herbs Valerian Compound that is a liquid so is absorbed quicker, this can be used to calm and relax both cats and dogs. Mark & Chappell Serene-UM drops for both cats and dogs are a 100% natural supplement to relieve anxious pets helping both the pet and their owners through stressful times.
