July 4th celebrations are synonymous with missing pets

PRLog - Jun. 13, 2014 - NAPLES, Fla. -- SOUTH FLORIDA – The July 4th weekend is one of the most dangerous times of the year for family pets.  There is a 30% to 60% increase in the number of lost pets during this time. Current statistics show that only 14% of these lost pets are ever returned to their owners. Up to 60% of the pets that remain lost are eventuallyeuthanized because of lack of space in shelters after the holiday.

“As with all other Americans”, states Robin Edwards, owner of Dog Guard Out of Sight Fence of South Florida, “I enjoy the celebration and excitement that this holiday brings. I am deeply concerned over the way our dogs react during this holiday.”

Loud noises and bright lights are frightening for pets. There are ways to enjoy the holiday that are fun for both pets and pet owners, Edwards said.

“Do not leave your dog alone in the car or the back yard when you go to watch the fireworks. It would be best to have someone with your dog during times of loud noises and flashes to calm and redirect him,” she said.

Edwards offers additional and more detailed tips on how you and your dog can enjoy Independence Day at 4th of July Tips for You and Your Dog (http://dogguardsouthflorida.com/4th-of-july-dog-safety/).

By taking these precautions, you and your pets can have a safe and happy holiday

McKinley Edwards
