Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween is supposed to be scary for people but not for your pets. Please be sure to use common sense and keep them safe this Halloween. Here are a few safety tip reminders.

1) Chocolate is toxic for both cats and dogs so keep it away from them. Also be sure to keep candy wrappers, foil paper,  sticks from suckers etc. out of their reach. Ingesting any of these can cause serious internal problems.

2) Do not allow your pets to be outside Halloween evening. Kids in costumes laughing and carrying on can be very scary for pets and may cause them to run away or. hide.

3) The constant ringing of the doorbell or knocking on the door can also be very frightening for animals and may cause them to act out. Keep you pets in an enclosed room preferably with a TV or radio on or better yet,  human company to keep them calm.

4) If pets are not confined,the opening of the door time after time is also an invitation for a cat or dog to escape into the street. Be very careful if they are loose in the room.

5) Be careful with the decorations you use. Candle lit pumpkins can be knocked over by curious cats and dogs sweeping tails. All decorations should be non-toxic and secured for safety.

6) Last, but not least, if you are putting a costume on your pet, please be sure it is comfortable for them to wear, that they can see and breathe properly in the costume, as well as move easily. The costume should not be binding anywhere.

Follow these simple common-sense rules and both you and your pets can have a great Halloween.
