lots of people celebrate by watching firework displays
Here are our top tips to help keep your pets safe and happy during fireworks:
If you know there's going to be fireworks, keep your pets in the house.
Shut any windows and doors so they can't run off if they do get frightened.Make sure blinds and curtains are closed.Build them a den in an area they feel safe in. This could mean putting an extra blanket on their bed.Try turning up the TV or music so they're distracted by familiar sounds.
If your pets are unsettled, it's important not to get cross with them or make too much of a fuss of them.
Give them some space and treat them as you would normally.
If possible, bring your outdoor pets inside.
Move animals in their hutches, like guinea pigs or rabbits, to a garage or shed.Soundproof their cages by putting a breathable blanket over the top.Give them some extra bedding so they have somewhere to hide if they do get scared.
