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 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.
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.
