Top 5 Things You Can Do to Make Halloween Safer for Your Pet!
With a little bit of planning, you can make Halloween less scary for your furry family members!
Keep your pet inside:
When all the kids are out in their costumes trick or treating it’s easier to keep your pets contained inside where you can be sure they will be ok and not overwhelmed by everything!
Don’t feed your pets halloween candy:
It is not healthy for pets to eat candy and in some cases can even be deadly. In general, anytime you have any doubt about if you should feed something to your pet play it safe and don’t do it or consult your veterinarian!
Minimize the amount of times your doorbell goes off by unhooking it or giving out candy outside of your home!
Pets can become excitable and anxious from the sound of the doorbell and the increased frequency from trick or treaters can make things even worse.
Keep Glow sticks and glow jewelry away from pets:
While not likely to be fatal, if your pet bites into a glow stick and ingests any of the liquid inside it can result in some severe health problems!
Keep lit candles and jack-o-lanterns away from pets:
The last thing you need with the holiday season beginning is for your pet to accidentally knock over a lit candle and start a fire in your home! Better safe than sorry!
