Secure Pets Before July 4th Fireworks

pets

Not everyone likes fireworks.  Dogs, cats and other domestic animals as a matter of fact usually hate the noise.  All too often, they will run away in their fright and become lost.  Teton County Animal Shelter Manager Cory Ryback says some thought for their security should be given prior to the night of July 4th.  She advises keeping the pet in a place where they feel secure inside the house.  Additionally, Ryback suggests, “You can have some music going to help eliminate some of the suddenness of those booms; and you want to make sure they have their collar and identification on them in case do get away.”  If you return from the fireworks and find you best friend missing, Ryback says the Shelter may be one of the first calls you make.  The shelter will be closed through Independence day, but will be open again at 9:00 am Friday. If a pet is particularly prone to fear of loud noises, Ryback says a so-called “thunder shirt” may be a good investment to help them feel more secure. Those are available at pet stores and some vet clinics.

  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
