SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – The Fourth of July is right around the corner, and that means fireworks.

Here is a list of tips to help keep your pet calm and safe during the holiday:

  • It’s best you don’t take your pets outdoors to an event with you.
  • Keep them indoors, even if they typically live outside.
  • Make indoors as quiet as possible
  • Put on some ambient noise, such as radio or television.
  • Close the blinds to minimize any light.
  • Make sure that if you do take your pets outside, they are microchipped.
  • At the very least, make sure that they are wearing an ID tag with your current address and phone number.
  • You can also request medication from the vet to help calm your pet down.

We hope this helps your furry friends this weekend!
