OUR TIPS TO HELP YOUR PETS STAY CALM AND RELAXED ON BONFIRE NIGHT

Whether your furry family members have issues with certain noises, cower at the sound of a loud bang or pop,  or hide under the furniture, these tips will help you all feel secure, comfortable and at ease.

Dogs

  • Take your dog for a walk early in the evening. 
  • Dogs may benefit from Adaptil plug ins and spray products. Spray onto your pet’s blankets and toys. 
  • Give your dog a big starchy meal the night before the fireworks to help them relax.
  • Build a safe, dark, comfortable den with their favourite toys, treats and blankets in a quiet place.
  • Shut all doors and windows to keep the noise to a minimum.
  • Close curtains to block out the flashes.
  • Ensure your pets are micro-chipped so that if they escape from the house, scared and confused, there is a better chance you will be reunited.
  • Spend time helping them relax with some music or TV, the music will help drown out any other noises.
Cats


    • Bring your cat in a few hours earlier.
    • Shut the cat flap before it gets dark, make sure they have a litter tray available, enough food and water and a cosy blanket for them to snuggle!
    • Cats may benefit from Feliway plug ins or sprays.
    • Build a safe, dark, comfortable den with their favourite toys, treats and blankets in a quiet place.
