We should avoid crackers that make a very loud noise, instead, we should use only bright-colored crackers.

Deadly effects of firecrackers on Pets
The pets of our houses and also homeless street dogs get scared and tense when they hear the loud noise generated by the firecrackers. Pets run here and there and some pets leave the space where they live and they can lost anywhere.
Dogs have a very special power which is their stronger hearing power than us and they easily catch high-decibel sounds during the lover’s and friends’ festival seasons. the dog can bear pain threshold is approximately 95 decibels which are lesser than humans with 130 decibels. That’s why the sound of 190 decibels generated by firecrackers makes dogs and other pets feel uncomfortable. It may be caused by permanent or temporary sound phobia due to loud noise.
There are some common symptoms when we burst the cracker, see in pets fear, confusion, salivation, shaking, trembling, shivering, excessive barking, loss of appetite, aggressiveness, and hiding under the bed, or bench and not even listening to you.
Sometimes sudden bright light after the bursting of a firecracker can lead to partial or even permanent blindness in pets like dogs and cats.
Due to heavy smoke in the sky, the vision is very poor, especially at night, the pet birds bump into unknown objects and injure themselves in response to the loud noise of the firecrackers and also too loud music. The sudden bright light glare of burning firecrackers can also blur vision or cause permanent visual impairment.
