Pet owners warned to prepare for fireworks

Fireworks on New Year’s Eve might be fun for many humans, but they are sheer hell for many pets – especially dogs.

DOG’S NIGHTMARE: Noisy fireworks can be frightening to many animals, especially dogs.

Vets throughout the Maitland area are bracing themselves for a string of dramas they expect to confront tonight when many dogs will break out of their homes and run off in desperation to escape the noise of crackers.

Dr Lauren Alexander of Greencross Vets Rutherford said a priority for dog owners on New Year’s Eve should be to ensure their animals were properly secured for the night.

“It is so important that dogs are locked up securely tonight, either in a room or in a yard where they cannot get out,” Dr Alexander said.

“If dog owners believe their pets might escape, they should make sure their pet’s microchip details are clearly visible on its collar.

“We get a lot of dogs who escape and are brought in whose microchip details are not up to date and wecannot connect them with their owners.”

Dr Alexander said vets could also provide medications in some circumstances to keep animals calm.

People are advised to bring animals to the RSPCA in Rutherford if they are found wandering.

The RSPCA can be contacted on 4939 1555.
