How you can help your pet have a Happy 4th of July

WE may love all the 4th of July celebrations, but your pet might not…

WGN TV put out a list of ways to keep your dog or cat safe during the holiday weekend. These include limiting sun exposure, watching over your party food, and other safety precautions.

The key thing though, and most pet owners probably already know this, is fireworks. If you’ve had multiple pets, you’ve probably had at least one furry friend that was not fond of fireworks. WGN recommends keeping your pet contained with toys and calming music. If you’re going out, you might want to leave an item of clothing with your scent to give them comfort.

It’s going to be a loud 4th of July, so make sure your 4-legged loved ones are ready for it!
