The fourth of July can be a great holiday for humans but it also can cause stress for many pets who may become scared of the fireworks.
By planning ahead, you can help ensure your pet is happy and safe this fourth of July. Reports say don't take your pet to a firework display. Also if you leave them alone make sure they are in a quiet area.
"Keep them at home, what we do with our pets is keep them in our bedroom. We've got a TV or a radio on, something to kind of drown the noise out because fireworks will be going off in the neighborhoods," said Dr. Ben Garrett, a veterinarian at the Dothan Animal Hospital.
If you know your pet is seriously distressed by loud noises, consult with your veterinarian before next week's holiday to help relieve fear and anxiety.
