However, on the Canada Day and Fourth of July holidays, it’s inevitable that someone, somewhere nearby is going to set off an array of roman candles.

As a pet owner, you can do your part to minimize the stress and ensure the safety of your beloved furry friend. Start by taking some tips from this handy infographic on firework safety for pet owners, created by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), the U.K.-based animal welfare charity, and have a safe and happy long weekend holiday!
