  Help for pets scared of fireworks
Updated 22 October 2003, 14.42
Pets can often be scared of fireworks
A vet in the Midlands reckons he's come up with a scheme to make Bonfire Night much easier for pets to deal with.

It's a special CD called Crash, Bang, Wallop that helps dogs and cats get used to the loud noises fireworks make.

Pet behaviour expert Howard Jones, thinks that playing the noises to the animals on a CD means they won't be so frightened by the real things.

Howard hopes the CD will also help pets cope with lots of other loud noises that can leave them scared too.

He says it's getting more important to help pets cope with fireworks, because they're being used for occasions like weddings and birthdays now.

And it's not just the noises of fireworks that pets need help with, even vacuum cleaners and loud traffic can sometimes scare them.
