Animals subject to injury from bangers and firecrackers

Dogs, horses and cats are all subject to serious injury at this time of year as a result of bangers and firecrackers being left off around the county. A Killarney vet says the noise frightens the animals, particularly dogs causing them to react hysterically, running wildly though windows or into fences. Vetinary surgeon Tom Brosnan says there is the option of sedating your dog if it is particularly sensitive to bangers.
