While holidays are great for us, some holidays can be very stressful for our pets. This is specifically true for the Fourth of July which includes a proliferation of loud fireworks set off in the streets leading up to the days and nights of July Fourth. Dogs and cats have much more sensitive hearing than humans do and can pick up higher frequencies. The professional fireworks displays presented by cities celebrate the holiday safely. But, what can we do for our scared and stressed-out pets? NoHo Senior Arts Colony is a pet-friendly apartment community and we care very much about the emotional well-being of our furry loved ones. We found some tips to help prepare ahead of time to minimize anxiety. First, check with your veterinarian. They are the experts and will be happy to answer any questions and provided guidance. Consumer Reports and The Dodo have ideas to help your pets feel less anxious.
