Preparing Your Pets for Fireworks Night:
Pet Essentials at the centre: Don’t forget about your four-legged family members! St Georges is a one-stop destination for pet essentials:
- Calming Products: Look for calming treats, pheromone diffusers, or anxiety wraps to help your pets stay calm during the fireworks.
- Pet Comfort Items: Pick up their favorite toys, blankets, and a cozy bed to create a safe and soothing space for them indoors.
- Create a Safe Haven: Before the fireworks start, designate a quiet, secure room at home where your pets can retreat. Close windows and curtains to minimize noise and flashes of light.
- Stay with Your Pets: While the fireworks are ongoing, spend time with your pets to provide comfort and reassurance. Gentle petting and a calming presence can make a big difference.
- Consult a Vet: If your pets have severe anxiety, consult your veterinarian for advice and possible medications to help manage their stress.
With a little planning and a visit to St Georges, you can ensure both you and your pets have a safe and enjoyable fireworks night. Don’t forget to create a secure environment for your pets and stock up on all the necessary supplies, so you can celebrate with peace of mind and make it a memorable occasion for your entire family.
