    It's not a good idea to let your pet roam freely in the yard when bonfires are burning or the grill is on. Burns can happen in an instant.

    It's best to make sure your furry friends are at a safe distance from any pyrotechnic festivities. If your cat or dog is particularly scared of fireworks, keep them in a calm, cool environment with soothing music playing.
