Pets tend to be less than fond of traditional 4th of July festivities. If your dog is along for the ride, be sure to keep an eye on them and that they have the proper identification – fireworks are a common cause of runaways. Ideally you should try to keep your dog indoors throughout the evening. If your party includes alcohol, remember to keep it away from Fido –

fermented hops and ethanol are quite poisonous to dogs as well as cats.
