The vets have seen first-hand the impact fireworks can have on some pets.

They said: "Make a safe house for your pet, a 'den' can help them a lot when loud fireworks are in the area.

"To make a simple den for them you can place a blanket over a table to cover below and include some cushions, favourite toys and treats etc in there.

"This will comfort your pet very well in these circumstances".
