Top 6 Fourth of July tips for Pet Owners

From a nationally renowned pet-health expert who lives in Redlands and owns the downtown shop Furry Face.

  1. Do not leave animals outside AT ALL for the next several days to eliminate panic and runaways. Go outside WITH your animals, stay with them and, if necessary, take them out on a leash, even in their own backyard. This is not about how humans see it. This is about how animals see it and, to them, it's terrifying, loud, unknown, smells dangerous (burning) and threatening. Even if it's not close by, animals' sense of smell and hearing is MUCH greater than ours.

  2. If fireworks are close by or large enough, the concussive impact of the explosion can be felt by animals further increasing their fear. Animals will choose flight over fight instinctively so be certain they wear collars with tags showing CURRENT contact info!!!

  3. Keeping a TV on a station or show that is loud to drown out outside noises. We prefer a TV over music because the images can help to distract the dog and interrupt focus. We carry something called a Happy Hoodie that is comfortable and they can wear over their ears.

  4. We have a sale on a calming product called "July Third" thru July 3rd while supplies last. We have a lot of other calming products that come in liquid tinctures, chewables, capsules and powders. Also, we have CBD oil for high high anxiety kids.

  5. Crating is beneficial during this time because it helps the dog feel more secure.

  6. As seen in this photo you can wrap a dog with an ace bandage but any tight t-shirt will provide that same hugged feeling, helping the dog feel more secure.

Feel free to call 909-748-0777 or come in if you have questions. Hours: Sat, 10am-7pm; Sun 1pm-5pm; Monday 10am-7pm. Closed July 4th.
