How does the 4th of July affect your pet? – By Michael G. Grace

As we prepare to celebrate the day our nation was born, you may be cleaning off the grill, seasoning your favorite meats, picking out a suit to wear, or putting the finishing touches on a special recipe, but what your pet will be doing is probably not at the front of your mind.

Did you know that July 4th is the busiest day at the pet hospitals and vet offices across the nation? Or, that the 4th-5th of July are the two busiest days for Animal shelters?

While backyard barbecues, beach trips, camp outs, and neighborhood parties might be well-suited 4th of July activities for people, dogs find loud noises, flashing firework displays, and crowded places very difficult. Even the most well-behaved and sociable dog will likely be happier at home during these events. Other things that can affect your pet are alcoholic drinks, matches, lighter fluid, insect repellent and other bug repellent products like citronella candles. If your pet were to ingest any of these items due to anxiety, it will result in a quick trip to the pet hospital.

While the ASPCA recommends locking canines in a quiet, sheltered space at home to reduce any anxiety or fear, we know there are folks out there that love thier dogs and would like for them to be a part of 4th of July festivities. That is why we advise taking the ASPCA’s recommendation to the next level and purchasing a great Pet Insurance plan. You can even go further than that and have your spayed/neutered pet “chipped” very cheaply and easily just in case they get lost. This can be done at the SPCA here in Central Florida. (Price quoted as of 7/1/12 – $30 including national registration). Did we mention that chipping your pet also provides you with additional discounts on Pet Insurance? Typically, the discounts you receive on pet insurance offset the cost of getting your pet chipped, entirely.
