Q321: My dog is really afraid of fireworks, do you have any advice?

The best thing to do is to keep the animal indoors with the windows closed. Also try to keep the TV on or music playing to perhaps muffle the sound of the fireworks. Dogs have better hearing than humans do and for them fireworks are extremely loud and scary. 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.
