When fireworks are set off, it makes loud and sudden noises. Unexpected noises like bangs, sirens, shrieks, crackles, etc., can startle or frighten animals. Besides the loud noise, bright light flares and flashes also upset pets. Pets are sensitive to loud noises and bright lights. Firecrackers also release smoke and fumes and produce gunpowder smells that further irritate pets’ noses. Fireworks are often a part of more significant celebrations or gatherings. Pets that are normally docile may become uneasy around strangers or too many people. This can further aggravate the situation and stress your pet.
