Any suggestions to keep pets from suffering from fireworks? Should they be kept inside, given something to tranquilize them?
I don't like to give them tranquilizers. For some reason I have the impression I am harming them. In my case, I put my dog in a part of the house that is more secluded from noise and try to get him to sleep early. I also put the radio with music near to try to cover the noise in part. Mostly I go and see him often during the noise so he knows I'm close and is less frightened.
I found some interesting suggestions in this article today: http://www.revistamaru.com/1538142-mascotas-como-vivir-unas-fiestas-sin-sustos
I like these:
Never leaver your pet tied up - Identify your pet - Leave chewing toys, water, food.
