More pets go missing around the 4th of July. According to national statistics, animal control officials across the country see a 30-60% increase in lost pets each year between July 4th and 6th.
In fact, July 5th is one of the busiest days of the year for shelters.
The safety and comfort of your pet requires special attention beforehand, so help your pets celebrate the evening free from fear by following these steps:
Here are just a few foods that can be hurtful …. especially to our senior dogs!
- Bones: Certain bones can lacerate or obstruct your pets’ insides
- Cake batter: contains raw eggs
- Candy: contain artificial sweetener xylitol
- Chocolate: (dark/baking)
