As Bonfire Night approaches, people will be busy buying sparklers and fireworks but may forget about the traumatic effects the noisy evening can have on pets.
In the run up to Halloween and 5th November, Petlog urges pet keepers across the country not to ignore their four-legged friends. Halloween costumes and the loud bangs and flashes created by fireworks can be exciting for humans but very frightening for dogs, and keepers will need to plan ahead to keep their dog safe.
Feel free to use our copy below when contacting pet keepers.
