Firework parties can be great fun but not always enjoyable for our pets.
Some simple measures such as keeping your pet inside when fireworks are likely, providing a safe haven and masking the noise by keeping the pet in a room with curtains and blinds closed with background music can be effective but behaviour modification and medication may also be needed.

Rachel RoperICR Vets, Edinburgh
“We use Vetlexicon in practice quite frequently. We have a lot of mixed orthopedic procedures which we like to use the client factsheets for. It’s a really handy resource just for when you’re not quite sure what you’re doing, just to look something up quickly in between client slots.”
Simone HerbertAdelaide Equine Vet Dentistry, Australia
“We love the ease of access to Vetlexicon where ever we are. As equine vets, we are often consulting out of the office and access to reference textbooks etc. can be tricky. The ease of being able to open a laptop and brush up before a consult or simply show clients a similar image as a reference is so useful and makes us more efficient.”
Els Van HaverDierenarts Van Haver, Belgium
“It’s an easy accessible trustable source of clinical information that I can rely on to confirm or helps to find a diagnosis.”
