Fireworks anxiety

The last months of the year are a happy, but also very busy time for us. That is why now is a good time to think about what impact these festivities have on our pets. Most pets experience the fireworks on new year’s Eve as very stressful. Fortunately, there are many ways to limit this stress and to prepare our pets, so that it is a nice new year for them too.

The therapy of fireworks anxiety can be divided into a long term approach and a short term approach. The long term approach is preferred, because it achieves an actual change in behaviour, in addition to the use of medication. Should the long term approach have insufficient effect, then you can use short term medication to inhibit the anxiety at new year’s Eve as much as possible.

Tips to deal with anxiety for new year’s Eve:

  • Walk your dog on new year’s Eve already during the day in a quiet area, so that he has lost a part of its energy;
  • Keep your cat inside, at least in the hours around the turn of the year;
  • Don’t let your pet alone at home on new year’s Eve;
  • On new year's Eve itself: close the curtains and turn on the radio or television. In this way your pet will notice less of the fireworks;
  • Let your pet itself choose the place where he feels most comfortable;
  • ­Give your animal, already before the fireworks starts, distraction in the form of chewable items or toys;
  • Keep yourself as calm as possible and don’t reward your pet if it shows fear.
