Diwali is a time when many animals get injured, get lost and get on with accidents. This is because the strong noise of the firecracker scares them and they also hurt by the firecrackers. Often dogs run away and leave their regular area, thus getting lost. It is mostly about jerks, but even pets are afraid of crackers and shivering due to noise. The pollution caused by these firecrackers also affects the birds, which may leave their nests and fly away. While we all enjoy the festival with such enthusiasm, it is time for us to think a bit that we humans are not the only ones living here. We give you some tips to celebrate a pet friendly Diwali this year.

Tips to celebrate belly-friendly Diwali

  • If you are tying / biting your pet dog in the balcony, stay in the room with you during Diwali.
  • Not all houses are noise proof. In that case, make sure you sit by your pet when the firecrackers are bursting outside. Cool them by just patting them and just holding them by the side.
  • If you have brought fireworks to your home, store them in a place where your pet will not be able to smell it. Dogs have a strong sense of smell and can go in search of firecrackers.
  • Keep your pets away from rangoli, diya oil and candles. If none of these are safe.
  • Before letting your pet take a walk, start bursting crackers. Even if you are with them, the noise of firecrackers can be deafening.
  • Not only your pets, allow them to rest under your building or in the parking lot. Make sure no one is bursting crackers nearby. Dogs usually sit under cars to avoid noise. Do not remove them.
  • Offer water to your neighborhood.
  • Always keep contact numbers of animal shelters and veterinarians ready. If you see an injured animal, please call and ask for help.

    While you enjoy and celebrate the festivities, leave little thought for the animals as well. Make it a safe and peaceful celebration for all animals, birds and your pets. We wish you all a very Happy Diwali!
