Q321: My dog is really afraid of fireworks, do you have any advice?
Dogs have better hearing than humans do and for them fireworks are extremely loud and scary.
Keep the animal indoors, close the windows and have the TV on or music playing to muffle the sound of the fireworks.
There are some products that vets may be able to offer to help keep your dog calm.
If at all possible try and make sure someone is at home with the animal as it will be comforting to have a familiar face around.
Dogs can also benefit from having a safe space in the house where they can hide. A crate covered with a blanket for example can help with settling a nervous dog.
