Fireworks can have a strong physical effect on dogs and other animals . They are not just ‘scared’. Being a dog owner myself , I have realised just how distressing this is to see .

For a number of animals , this can lead to illness and eventual death . Some animals are particularly vulnerable , such as those with Addison’s disease ( like my dog ), which means that they cannot produce the appropriate stress response hormones , and therefore cannot physically cope with extremely stressful situations . Thankfully my dog has not been fatally affected by fireworks , but I hope as he gets older this doesn’t happen.

People enjoy fireworks , and those without animals may not understand how distressing they can be . So demanding the complete ban of fireworks seems like too much to ask . 

A ban on private ( back garden ) firework displays would not only mean that there are less days on fireworks occur , it also means that they are likely to be further from residential areas . 

Public displays are well advertised , so the owners of vulnerable animals , have time to make as many arrangements as possible to reduce their animals stress. And on other days when these displays are not on , owners can go about their lives without having to worry. They also are more likely to occur on weekends , so the owners are more likely to be in the house.

Please sign this petition , as it doesn’t demand the removal of fireworks entirely , but also gives us a chance of keeping our animals safe .
