Halloween can be a fun and excited holiday to share with your pet! However, it is important to remember to be a safe and responsible pet owner during this time. Here are some tips that should help.
You never know when your pet might go missing, especially with all of the people out and about. Make sure you have proper identification.
Safe Pet Costumes
If you plan to dress up your pet for Halloween, be sure to give them something that is comfortable and harmless. Make sure they seem at ease with the costume once you put it on.
Beware of Toxins
Halloween is a night of candy and sweets that can make your dog sick. You should be mindful about where you leave your goodies. Just a few tabs of dark chocolate can have a toxic effect on a small, ten pound dog.
Keep Your Pet Anxiety Free
It’s a good idea to keep your pet inside on Halloween night. On top of that, be mindful of where they are in the house and the effect that might have on their anxiety level. If they are friendly and happy to see people, they might not mind all the commotion. However, all the noise and people could cause some pets to stress out. Try to create a relaxing environment for your furry friend.
Use Common Sense and Have Fun!
Simply put, use common sense. Halloween is supposed to be fun, enjoy the night with your pet!
