Keep your pets safe this bonfire night!!!!

To dogs, cats and other animals, Bonfire Night might seem more like War of the Worlds than a traditional celebration. Noisy fireworks displays are frightening to animals, Who don't realise that the explosions are entertainment, not a danger.

After firework displays, many animals panic and jump over fences or out of windows to get away from the terrifying sounds, and here at epic even though we enjoy the fireworks, in no such way do we believe in or ignore the fact that some animals are scared of them.

To help this ongoing matter below is a list of things you yourself can do as pet owners and pyro-lovers to keep animals safe and sound this bonfire night.

PETA encourages everyone to take the following precautions to ensure the comfort and safety of their animal companions:

- Keep cats and dogs inside during fireworks displays, and if possible, stay with them.
- Leave your animals at home during the celebrations; never take them with you to watch fireworks displays. Never leave animals tethered outside - they can hang themselves if they leap over a fence while trying to run from the noise. Close your windows and curtains. Turn on the TV or a radio which is tuned to a classical music station to help drown out the sound of the fireworks. Make sure that your animal companion is microchipped and wearing a collar or harness with an updated identification tag - just in case.

With these tips in mind, there is no reason why people and pets cant enjoy bonfire night with peace of mind.
