Pet Safety Tips To Consider For Your Halloween Festivities

Veterinaire Pet Care addresses a common yearly concern seen of the clinic with keeping our pets safe during Halloween.

To prevent any issues and a trip to the veterinarian, we need to start thinking about how to keep our pets safe during Halloween. There is no doubt that our pets will be tempted to eat your candy at any opportunity they may get. In addition, Halloween nights may sometimes be too loud for our four-legged friends that roam around in and around our house. Here are some quick tips to think about as we enjoy the festivities during Halloween.

First, keeping candies away from our pets before, during, and after Halloween should be a priority for us. Many candies have ingredients, such as chocolate and xylitol, that are not good for pets and may cause blockages in their intestines or constipation issues. Other factors to consider would be costumes that we may want to have our pets wear as way for them to be part of the holiday fun. Be wary of costumes that that may have dangling pieces or a loose-fitting outfit, either of these can allow our pets to chew them off and potentially swallow something harmful. Lastly, try to expend your dog’s (or cats) energy as much as you can during the day, before the festivities begin. This will avoid you having to take out on a stroll towards the evening or night hours when other trick-or-treaters may be out. You should never leave your pet alone during Halloween nights because they might be stressed from the loud noises and activities.

This article from the American Kennel Club provides some tips on how to keep your pet safe during this spook-filled night.
