A Note of Caution:
Indian festivals involve plenty of joy, families and friends come together to celebrate with music, food and sometimes, even crackers. While some pets love being the life of the party, others are frightened by loud noises and crowds.
Quiet Spaces for Nervous Pets:For those pets, who fall under this category, remember to keep a close eye on them. When pets are frightened, they tend to run helter-skelter, sometimes even escaping the compound in their panic. Try to keep things low-key for these pets and keep them in a secure space with minimal noise. Speak to your vet/ an animal behaviourist on the many steps you can take to keep your pet relaxed during Diwali.
Too many Sweets:Another aspect that you need to be vary of is the special sweets that are freely available during the festive season. Your clever fur-babies often break into your stock of festival sweets and polish off boxes of them at a lightening pace. Filled with sugar and ghee, these can cause digestive distress for your pets. If this does happen, it is best to consult a vet. Caution your guests against overfeeding your pets as well.
Pet Parent Supervision: If your pet is wearing clothes or accessories, ensure that they do so under your supervision. These can easily get caught on furniture, gates, doors or anything that juts out. Your pet may not understand how to get himself out of this situation. In his or her struggle to get out, they may injure themselves. If there are lit diyas placed around the house, you need to be especially careful that your pet’s clothes are nowhere near them.
