Worried about keeping Fido and Fluffy safe during Monday’s eclipse?

The Louisiana SPCA says there’s little evidence a solar eclipse will be dangerous for pets, since pets do not normally stare at the sun. Still, the animal welfare organization says, dog and cat owners might want to want to consider keeping their pets inside to be on the safe side.

“From our secondary research, there is little evidence to say if a solar eclipse will or will not be dangerous for pets to view,” Louisiana SPCA Community Clinic Director, Jessica Lovelady said. “While some authorities suggest putting a pair of solar glasses on your pet during an eclipse we anticipate that most pets will not be very happy with this option.”

The Louisiana SPCA encourages those worried about the safety of their pets during Monday's partial solar eclipse to bring them indoors.
