Keep your pets away from the firecrackers
Firecrackers are too loud, flashy and also are made of substances that are toxic for humans as well as animals. Your furry buddy can get anxious and overwhelmed just because of showy lights and loud noise from the firecrackers. Being a good pet parent, you need to chuck the crackers to the side and can try their best to make the Diwali festival pet-friendly at least for the sake of their furry companion.
Go for Eco-friendly lights or décor
Celebrating a crackers-free Diwali doesn’t mean that you can’t celebrate the festival of lights to the fullest. Lamps or Diyas are an Eco-friendly option that is perfectly great for both pets and the environment. While decorating your house on Diwali, make sure it is pet-safe. Make this Diwali happy and more special for your little fur buddy.
Keep sweets out of your pet’s reach
During the festive season, every home is filled with sweets, savouries, and chocolates. Your pet is probably running towards you and asking for a treat. But try to keep sweets out of reach to them or don’t feed them any seeds, as Indian sweet dishes usually have some ingredients that might cause allergies to your four-legged furry baby or sometimes can even be toxic to your pet.
Create a safe & happy place
Diwali is the festival of “light & sound”. Though people enjoy bursting and having a light and sound show, it can turn a misery for the animals. The sounds and lights of the crackers hurt the ears of every animal as well as humans while making them frightened to death. There are some effective ways you can protect your pets and other stray animals during the celebration. Keep your pet indoors, create a safe and happy place for your furriend, or where the sound of the crackers will not be very loud. Keep your pets always hydrated to help in handling their anxiety issues. The easiest way to celebrate pet-friendly Diwali for every pet parent is by keeping the doors and windows locked once the fireworks begin outside your home.
