SOME USE­FUL AD­VICE TO HELP YOUR FURRY FRIENDS

EDP Norfolk - - Pets -

Walk dogs dur­ing day­light hours to avoid times when fire­works are likely to be set off

Close win­dows and cur­tains to muf­fle the sound of fire­works

Put on some mu­sic or the TV to mask the fire­work sounds

Cre­ate a quiet space where your dog or cat can feel in con­trol – and cre­ate some hid­ing places around your home.

Cover up the cages of small an­i­mals liv­ing out­doors with blan­kets and tar­pau­lins so it is sound­proofed and hid­den - but en­sure there is still a small space where they can look out. Put in ex­tra bed­ding for them to bur­row in and if needed, con­sider bring­ing them in­side. And fi­nally, it isn’t just pets who are af­fected Pro­tect small an­i­mals in your gar­dens that might nest in bon­fires. Build bon­fires as close to the time of light­ing as pos­si­ble, and check them thor­oughly for an­i­mals be­fore light­ing. See www.rspca.org.uk/ ad­vice­andwel­fare/pets/ gen­eral/fire­works
