To keep anxiety and stress from worsening for cats and dogs, due to large crowds of people or fireworks, Pet Expo staff recommend using products like compression jackets, pheromone diffusers and collars, and, of course treats!
”I would say during those more stressful holidays, for sure,” said Victoria Morsching, from Pet Expo. “Whether it’s 4th of July or Christmas, [or] when a lot of people are coming around.”
Staff also mentioned the 4th of July is when the greatest number of cats and dogs go missing.
With that, pet owners are urged to keep tags on their pets with a name and a phone number or address.
