Happy 4th, Not so Happy 5th.


Everybody loves fireworks right? Nope! Did you know that July 5th is the single busiest day at most animal shelters? The busiest day around the country is July 5th. Shelters are "absolutely chock full of terrified dogs on the day after the Fourth of July," said Dr. Kate F. Hurley, director of the Koret Shelter Medicine Program at the University of California at Davis Center for Companion Animal Health. A quick poll of DFW Metroplex Shelters confirms the same is true here! With the busy Summer season most shelters are beyond crammed so lost dogs frequently can't be held beyond the required 3-7 days. A microchip can help assure your pet will find its way back to you quickly.

Fireworks cause high levels of stress and anxiety for dogs during the 4th of July. In her days as an animal control officer, Dr. Hurley saw dogs "jump through plate glass windows, they were so freaked out." Some dogs even need heavy tranquilizers to get through the night, she added. (Full article link posted at end of this story.)
