Expert Says Fireworks Are For People, Not For Pets

With the fourth of July weekend here, animal experts are reminding us that fireworks are for people, not for pets.  Animal protection advocate Jane Hoffman of the Alliance for NYC’s Animals says fireworks displays can traumatize pets, so leave them home.  She suggests keeping your pets indoors during fireworks with windows or drapes closed and the TV or radio on to reduce the noise.  She also says if you don’t mind skipping the light show, stay home with your pets so they’ll have your calming presence there.
