FIREWORKS - useful information for your pets
The lead up to any celebration with fireworks, such as New Years Eve and particular Bonfire Night, can be a very traumatic time for many dogs. The loud bangs and flashes created by fireworks are often very frightening for them, making them stressed and unpredictable, potentially putting their safety at risk.
With around 40% of the UK's dogs being scared of fireworks, many owners often need to plan ahead and take steps to help keep their dog calm and safe. (extract from KC website listing on fireworks)
