Halloween Tips For Safe Pets

Halloween can be a spooky and fun time for everyone, including your pets if you follow these tips:

1. Trick-or-treat candies are for people not pets.

All forms of chocolate are dangerous, and sometimes lethal, for dogs and cats. If you pet has any symptoms of consuming chocolate including vomiting, diarrhea, rapid breathing, increased heart rate, and/or seizures consult your veterinarian immediately. Most people know about chocolate, but did you know that the artificial sweetener xylitol can also be poisonous to dogs? Even small amounts of xylitol can cause a sudden drop in blood sugar.

2. Keep your pets inside on Halloween

With all the people out trick-or-treating, or pranking, best to keep your pets inside where they are safe.

3. Keep pets under control and away from the often opening door.

Your door will most liekly be opening frequently, keep trick-of-treaters and your animals safe by keeping them in control and away from the door.�

4. Use battery operated light for your pumpkins instead of candles

Should your pets get too close to candles it could cause burns. Using battery operated lights for your pumpkins is much safer for your pets and trick-or-treaters.

5. Don’t dress your pet in a costume unless you know they’ll love it.

If you do decide that your dog or cat needs a costume, make sure it is safe and non-restrictive. Your pets should be able to move and bark/meow all they want.

6. Collars, tags and leashes

If you are out trick-or-treating with your pets or if your pets should escape, tags help find them and return them home,ps.
