If your pet lives outdoors in a hutch or kennel etc. bring it indoors.

Close the curtains, keep the windows and doors closed and turn the volume up on your TV or Radio to help drown out any loud bangs.

Comfort your pet with soothing words and stroking, do not add to the stress by shouting at them. Giving them a treat can help to take their mind off the fireworks. If they want to hide in a quiet corner or under the furniture let them, do not pull them out resulting in further stress.
