4TH Of July Pet Safety Advice from Lost Our Home Pet Rescue:

July 5th is always one of the busiest days of the year for Valley animal shelters.  While it's fun for us to celebrate with loud music, fireworks and backyard barbecues, dogs and cats are easily spooked by the loud noises and smells of the 4th of July.  

1. Keep your pet indoors.  Even if you pet is not easily frightened, fireworks scare most pets. Leave on a TV or music to help drown out the loud noises. You may not be near a firework show but that doesn't mean a neighbor won't set off fireworks.

2. Microchip you pet and make sure your pet is wearing a collar with an ID tag.  A collar with an ID tag is the fastest and easiest way for people to reunite pets and families after the celebration is over. A microchip is a great backup in the event the collar gets off. If your pet happens to get out and is lost, it will be much faster to locate the rightful owner if the pet is microchipped or has a collar on with ID including name and phone number.  (It's also great to have a current picture of your pet, just in case they go missing!)

3. Watch alcoholic drinks and pets. Alcoholic beverages have the potential to poison pets. Never leave your pet unattended with alcoholic drinks they could reach. 

4. Don't feed leftovers to your pet.  Barbecues can offer tantalizing treats for pets; however, most of them are toxic to our pets.  Fatty and rich foods (and the seasonings on them) such as hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken and baby back ribs can wreak havoc on your pet's stomach, often leading to indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea and ultimately pancreatitis. Onions and garlic, a common ingredient are toxic to dogs and cats and can lead to fatal poisoning.

5. Exercise your pet early in the day.  With the hot Phoenix temperatures, dogs need to be walked in the early morning hours to avoid the peak hours of sun when the pavement is the hottest. A good rule of thumb is if it's too hot for you to walk barefoot on it for the distance they need to walk, it's too hot for pets too.  Remember the longer the walk, the hotter the pavement will feel since there is not cooling down between the steps.
