Tip of the Day: What to Do About Nervous Pets and Fireworks – Prescott AZ

Tip of the Day: What to Do About Nervous Pets and Fireworks – Prescott AZ

It’s that time of year again when the news comes on and reminds us to keep our pets inside our homes rather than leaving them in the back yard for 4th of July fireworks.  Pets tend to get scared by the loud, booming noises of these fireworks and they can get really upset and even try to run away to find shelter from these noises.

Ruthie with Arizona Oriental here and I completely agree that we need to protect our pets.  I also think we should protect our area rugs as well.  While the noise becomes much less frightening in our homes, pets still have far better hearing than we do and still tend to get scared.

It isn’t uncommon for a scared or nervous animal to urinate.  I’m not sure why dogs always seem to go for the soft area rug when it comes to having accidents, but they do.  Because of this, it may not be the best idea to give your nervous animal friend access to your area rugs.

It may be best to keep your dog in a single room of your home instead of allowing them wherever they want.  Perhaps a room with a hard surface floor equipped with their bed and some soft music to soothe them is the best plan of action.  This way, your dog is well protected, you know exactly where they are, and you don’t have to worry about the potential of any animal accidents.

It’s important to have your area rug cleaned professionally by someone like Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott when your dog has an accident.  Having the urine treated quickly will prevent any further damage to your rug’s fibers.  At Arizona Oriental, we specialize in urine and odor removal for all kinds of area rugs from Persians, Orientals, wools, silks, synthetics, and everything in between!

Happy 4th of July to you and your pets!

Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floors and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
