July 4th Leads To More Lost Pets Than Any Other Day

4TH OF JULY LEADS TO MORE LOST PETS THAN ANY OTHER DAY

(CNN) – Experts are warning pet owners to prepare for the 4th of July holiday.

The celebration leads to more lost pets than any other day of the year.

Nationwide says July 5th is one of the busiest days at animal shelters.

That’s because so many pets are scared off from their homes by fireworks.

Nationwide suggests mircochipping so people can be easily reunited with a lost pet.

Also, talk to your vet about anti-anxiety medication that may make the holiday less stressful for your animal.

And keep your pets inside your home for the night to decrease the chance of them running off when scared.
