Diwali, the festival of lights and happiness is here! It is a festival full of celebrations, lightings and sweets. Enjoying this festival with family and friends is something everyone takes pleasure in. Pets are also a part of the family for animal lovers. But Diwali can be a distressing time for the animals due to the loud noise and lights all around. Dogs and cats have stronger hearing power. So, what we recognize to be loud is even louder and unbearable for them. Besides, dogs are also susceptible to vibrations caused by loud noises. Hence, one needs to take extra care of pets during Diwali season.
Here are a few calming tactics to help your pets when the noise levels are high.
The other risk during Diwali is when pets run away in fear and go missing. Engraving your mobile number on your pet’s collar, or, adding a pendant with his name and your number before the celebrations begin is strongly recommended. Do not leave your pets unattended even for short periods of time. While taking care of your pets, do not forget the stray animals in your locality. Take a round twice a day. Leave food and water for them. Try and keep them in your compound or garden or housing colony for a couple of days. If you see any of them wounded, take them to a veterinarian immediately or call for an ambulance.
Wishing you and your family (includes pets) a very happy and safe DIWALI!
