Pets' Fear of Fireworks

Fireworks Display

If you're not a Facebook user, you will have missed recent debates on the Haddenham.net FB page over the adverse effects of fireworks on horses and domestic pets. Concerns have also been expressed about the impact of loud bangs on former service men and women who may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

The greatest frustrations have been voiced when local residents have set off loud fireworks without warning from their back gardens or from village recreation areas. Clearly, other residents cannot take steps to minimise the impact of loud firework noises when such unplanned events take place.

It's probably unrealistic to expect those setting off fireworks to go round warning their neighbours in advance — the geographical area impacted would be too large.

Surely the best solution is to go along to one of the organised displays? These are well publicised in advance and pet owners can take actions to help minimise the impact on their pets.

There's also the added benefit of helping a good cause raise funds in the process.

If you're looking for an official, organised fireworks display, there are various options in local towns and villages.

Options for tonight and tomorrow evening (4th/5th November) can be found here
