Fourth of July fireworks are a blast for people, but they’re not much fun for pets.
Noisy fireworks can scare pets and cause them to run away. According to statistics, animal control officials across the country see a 30–60% increase in lost pets each year between July fourth and sixth. In fact, July fifth is traditionally one of the busiest days of the year for animal shelters.
And fireworks are only the most obvious danger the Fourth of July can pose for pets: holiday food and beverages are a potential health risk, and summer heat and travel can be hazardous, too.
