Friday, June 28, 1974 Veterinary Viewpoints One in a series oh animal liealtli and pet care presented as a public service }Sy the Mendo-Lal(e Veterinary Medical Association. The Fourth of July holiday is coming up and everyone is loolcing forward to the fun of setting off fireworlts. But how about your pett Is he loolcing forward to the ex- ci ^tement and noise" of fireworlcs? Probably not, warns the Mendocino-Lalce Veterinary Medical Association. If your pet is lilce most animals, the loud commotion will be a terrifying experience. According to the Mendocino- Lake Veterinary Medical Association, every year the noise and ruckus of the July 4 celebration cayses serious panic in many pets. Dogs and ' cats will nm blindly into the street —many of them being injured or killed by cars. Others just start running, become lost, and are never seen again. Still more animals become so frightened that eating habits are altered and there may be gastrointestinal upsets for several days afterward. Small caged pets, such as mice, hamsters and birds, can become so terrified that they will thrash about in their cages and cause severe injury to themselves. And last but irot least any badly frightened aniinal is apt to bite! If you expect that your pet will be apprehensive during the holiday, plan to confine him in a quiet part (Of the house or yard. If you don't think that confinement at home will be sufficient, you may want to board, your pet in a fennel until tlie ruckus is over. ' Very high strung anunals can be given tranquilizers if necessary (However, don't use a human tranquilizer on your pet. Insteadr^get the advice of your veterinarian. He can then dispense the proper tranquilizer and the correct dose for your animal. Questions about animal health or pet care may be sent to "Veterinary Viewpoints" co P.O. Box 613 Ukiah, Ca. 95482.
