Fireworks can be triggers for veterans and pets

Georgetown residents are reminded that loud noises like fireworks can be triggers for our veterans.

Residents are advised to ensure their dogs are safe inside their homes, especially during the holiday weekend evenings. The city says Georgetown animal control officers are picking up several loose dogs around July 4 and the New Year holidays, many of which never find their owners.

If your dog has a tendency to become anxious about loud noises, pet owners are advised to consider staying home with the pet, playing music in the house to muffle the sound of fireworks. and / or buy a product that “hugs” the dog. . A veterinarian may also be able to provide a tranquilizer for the dog.
