3 tips to make it a Happy Halloween for your furry friends

October 31, 2018

 

Happy Halloween!  Last year Americans spent $440 million on dog and cat costumes - yikes!

 

Halloween is a fun, tradition filled holiday.  However, there are a variety of things that can go wrong and turn dangerous on this day. 

 

Here are 3 tips I found useful to prevent pet disasters!

 

1) Candy - keep it away from pets!  Especially candy with chocolate or xylitol.   Chocolate contains theobromine that can make a dog's heart race, resulting in illness or death

 

Xylitol can cause a life-threatening drop in your dog's blood sugar.  It is found in gum and mints

 

2) Bolters - the door will be opening/closing a lot,  and if your cat or dog is an escape artist

 

consider putting them in their kennel - or - sitting outside (keep pets inside) to hand out candy

 

3) Costumes - don't put masks on your pets face or drape fabric over their head - they get scared when

 

they can't see what's around them. 

 

Also, don't cover their privates!  They may need to 'go' and the costume will be short lived 

 

Have a Happy Halloween!
