Safety First

FIREWORKS AND ANIMALS

As a responsible firework supplier we now include some low noise selection boxes and small rockets in some of the ranges available from major high street stockists. The RSPCA and the Blue Cross (Britain’s Pet Charity) recommend the following guidelines in order to keep any animal/pet safe during the Bonfire season and around fireworks.

DOGS & CATS

Keep dogs and cats inside when fireworks are being let off. Make sure your dog is walked earlier in the day before the fireworks start. Close all windows and doors, and block off cat flaps to stop pets escaping and to keep noise to a minimum. Draw the curtains, and if the animals are used to the sounds of TV or radio, switch them on (but not too loudly) in order to block out some of the noise of the fireworks.

SMALL PETS

Small pets e.g. rabbits, hamsters, mice and birds, are the most vulnerable to fireworks – make sure you: Take hutches/cages into a garage or shed, or, a quiet room indoors if possible. Give your pet extra bedding to burrow into so it feels safe.

HORSES & PONIES

If you are aware that horses, ponies or cattle are housed nearby, ensure you let the owners know, in advance that you intend to set off fireworks. If you know your animals react badly to loud noises perhaps consider moving them for the night.
