4th of July Safety

As you are getting ready for your 4th of July activities, you should be sure that you know how you are going to make sure that you and your four-legged family members are safe.  There are a lot of pets that end up getting hurt on the 4th of July, simply because owners do not think about how to make the day safe for themselves and for their pets. So, this 4th of July you may want to…

  1. Make sure that your alcoholic drinks are not left unattended. An alcoholic beverage has the potential to poison pets or even hurt small children that are walking around. Alcoholic drinks can be a hazard if they are not being watched by an adult.
  2. Put sunscreen an insect repellent on the family.  When you are spending that much time outside, you should be sure that your skin is protected.  To ensure that your family does not end up with a painful sunburn or itchy bug bites, do not forget your sunscreen an insect repellent.  When you apply either of these to your dog, you should be sure that the sunscreen and repellent are labeled specifically for the use of dogs.
  3. Make sure that any matches or lighter fluid are kept in a safe place.

Take time to plan your 4th of July festivities, to ensure that you do not run into any major problems.  With enough planning and being aware throughout the day, you and your family can sit back, relax and enjoy this holiday.
