Handy tips for the noisy November period. November the 5th is Guy Fawkes Night and it is always a lovely time of year with fireworks lighting up the night sky. However it can be a very stressful time for your pets. We have put together a list of some simple ways to keep your pets calm during this noisy period.

  • Have some familiar noises in the house, for example keep the TV on or some music playing, so that it doesn't appear to be an abnormal situation.
  • Close the curtains so they won't see any of the fireworks because the flashes can scare them.
  • Keep outside noise to a minimum by closing all the windows and doors in the house.
  • If your cats are outdoor cats that come and go as they please, place a litter tray inside for them and once they are indoors close the cat flap so they don't go outside again.
  • Don't take your dog to a fireworks display, leave them at home..
  • If possible have someone stay in the house with your pets to calm and reassure them.
  • If your pet has had a previous problem on Guy Fawkes Night please consult your vet about the possible use of medication.
