The 4th of July is the busiest time for shelters – and not in a good way. Many of us know how to keep our beloved 4-legged family members safe, but with neighborhood gatherings, family and friends visiting, and just the outdoor nature of the holiday, sometimes a door stays open long enough for a scared dog or cat to escape. Please ask your guests to be mindful of your pets or, better yet, keep them in a secure area for the evening. They may not like it, but they will love you later.
For pets with anxiety issues, please call the Bredel Veterinary Clinic and make an appointment with Dr. Jessy for options to help your pets. Thei number is 301.387.7729. Happy and safe 4th of July to all of you!
