MAKE HALLOWEEN SAFE, NOT SCARY, FOR PETS

Halloween is right around the corner and is a fun time for humans, but not always for our pets. Follow these tips to ensure your pet is happy and healthy this Halloween.

 

Candy is for the kids. Chocolate can be very dangerous for dogs and cats. Give your pooch their own Halloween treat in the form of their favorite doggy snack.  Also, be sure that tasty choking hazards like used candy sticks and wrappers are kept out of reach.

 

Watch out for decorations. Make sure all decorations, wires, and cords are out of reach from your pets.

 

Be careful with costumes. If you want to dress up your pet, the costume shouldn’t constrict movement, hearing, or breathing. If your furry friend looks uncomfortable or stressed, take it off. Also, check for any small, dangling, or easily chewed-off pieces they could choke on.

 

Keep Fido at home while you trick-or-treat. It’s possible your dog could get spooked by a ghost or goblin and a dog bite or fight could occur.

 

Check ID’s. Always make sure your pet has the proper identification, whether it’s tags and/or a microchip. If for any reason your pet escapes or becomes lost, this will increase the likelihood of a safe return.
