■ Walk your dog earlier in the evening to tire them out.
■ Keep your pets inside with their bed, favourite toys and the curtains closed.
■ Feed them before the fireworks start. A full stomach should help them relax and make them sleepy.
■ If your pets want to hide, that’s fine. Create a ‘den’ of favourite blankets and toys to provide a safe place.
■ Turn on music or the TV to disguise the noise.
■ Keep your feline friend inside by keeping their cat door locked.
■ Ensure your pet is microchipped, has a collar and ID tag, in case they run from your property when they are scared.
■ For small pets and birds partially cover their cages or enclosures with a blanket.
