The explosive sounds, vibrations, flashes of light and burnt aromas can trigger the flight instinct, causing pets to run away and/or get injured. Even though the Fourth comes on the same date every year, it still can catch us off-guard. Preparedness is crucial to make the Fourth an enjoyable and safe holiday for you and your pet.

New jobs, graduation, my wedding — and another that sometimes gets lost in the rush of everyday life.
