Halloween Safety

Halloween is just a week away and for many of us humans it is a fun-filled evening filled with costumes, parties, trick or treaters, candy etc. But for our pets, it can be a terrifying and dangerous evening. In their weekly news brief, Pet Sitters' International reminds  us of the six important things you can do to keep your dogs and cats safe this coming Halloween.

1) Keep shy or timid dogs and cats away from trick or treaters in costume. It can be extremely scary for them to see excited kids all dressed up in weird and frightening attire.
2) Keep all Halloween treats including chocolate, candy, suckers and their wrappers away from your cats and dogs. It can make them very sick.
3) Keep all your pets indoors. You may normally let your cat out at night or have your dog in the backyard, but keep them all indoors on Halloween where they are safe from tricksters and possible dangers.
4)If you are planning on dressing up your cat or dog, remember that safety and comfort should always come first. If your pet does not like to be dressed up, DON"T DO IT!
5) If you are going to be away from home and need someone to care for your pets that evening, be sure to hire a professional pet sitter and not just the kid down the street. It will give you peace of mind knowing you have someone competent and reliable to care for your furry kids.
6) Because Halloween is a night when giving out candy to trick or treaters involves frequently opening the door, be sure to keep your cats and dogs away from the door where they can easily escape. 

Use these tips wisely and you and your fur babies can enjoy the holiday safely and happily.
