Real People’s resident ‘doggie doctor’, Nigel, answers your pet’s problems
I’m no scaredy-cat, but fireworks do make me jump – and they’re already exploding around my way. What can my owner do to help me relax?

Lots of pets feel the same! If your owner starts early, they could use a sound CD to get you used to fireworks. Creating a safe space for you will help, too. On the night, make sure your owner brings you in early and closes the windows. Love, Nigel xxx Nigel was helped by PDSA vet Rebecca Ashman. The PDSA is the UK’S leading veterinary charity.
