Don’t Forget Your Pets This Halloween!

Halloween can be a dangerous time for pets. Before you head out to Trick or Treat, here are a few easy things you can do to help keep your pets safe:

  1. Make sure that pets are safely kept away from the front door during trick or treating.  They can easily escape to the great outdoors.
  2. Make sure your pets have some form of ID (preferably a collar and microchip) in case they do decide to take off.
  3. Keep that candy out of reach!  Make sure children are aware that many candies can be toxic to pets, especially raisins, chocolate, or sugar free treats.
  4. Be aware of tip hazards when using lit candles. Inquisitive pets can easily knock these over and start a fire!
  5. Not all pets like to dress up! Be aware that putting a costume on your pet could be a serious source of stress!
