Keep pets in mind during the holiday weekend

The Dane County Humane Society is encouraging pet owners to make sure their pets are safe and secure at home and not bring them along to firework activities. They also said this is their busiest time of year because they get a lot of runaways. Providing ambient noise like a radio, TV or fan cab also help dampen the sound of fireworks.

To help keep your pets safe and comfortable, it is important to plan ahead with 4th of July safety tips. This includes having identifying markers or an ID tag on their collar or making sure they are microchipped. Anyone finding a lost animal is asked to file a found report with the shelter.

Leave your pet at home during fireworks. Visit http://kindredcarepet.net/ for additional information. No appointments are needed for microchipping. Animals scared enough will find new ways to escape even the most fortified yards in a panic to get away from the noise.

-Do not leave your pet in the auto. The South Texas heat can kill. Even on a 70-degree day the inside of a vehicle can reach temperatures of 120 degrees or more in a matter of minutes.

This year, at least one animal shelter has tried to get ahead of the lost-pet rush.

Don't give your pet "table food".

"Just because someone is a pet lover and has a profile on an online directory-or even on a nationally-publicized site-doesn't ensure he or she is a qualified pet sitter operating a legitimate business", said PSI Vice-President Beth Stultz.

"Many times, the shelter is the first place people will look when they have lost their pet", said Whitaker. Owners should be sure that their animals have access to fresh water at all times.

" Protect your pet from pranksters". Even taking the dog to a private social event for the Fourth can be a bad decision. ACS will investigate anyone suspected of cruelly treating any animal. If symptoms persist, consult your veterinarian. Your vet and local pet stores have a variety of remedies available to soothe your pet's nerves and set your mind at ease as well. The 4 of July may be a fun-filled holiday but for pets, the holiday can be potentially scary and hazardous.
