Doctor Lawrence McGill came to Good Day Utah Sunday to talk to people about pet safety as it relates to fireworks. See the video above for ways to make sure your pet stays safe and sound during the loud displays.

Tips include:

  • Pets are sensitive to sound but can't protect their ears
  • Fireworks are hot, so don't let pets get near them
  • Fireworks can frighten pets into running away
  • Keep pets inside with a TV or radio on as a distraction
