Nervous-dogThe 4th of July is tomorrow, and everyone knows that means fireworks. While they are fun for people, they are not so fun for pets, especially nervous pets.

Click here to get tips on how to keep pets calm during the summer fireworks, along with other stressful situations during the summer, such as travel and thunderstorms. Remember to follow us on Facebook for more important tips and updates. We wish all of our readers a safe and happy 4th of July!
