Halloween Pet Tips

Halloween is right around the corner and while planning how much candy you need to keep the trick-or-treaters happy, your costume and the costume for your kids, keep in mind some simple guidelines to keep your pet safe:

  • Keep your pet indoors, even if it does seem like a sure way of winning a costume contest to include your pet.  Not only will it keep your pet from becoming frightened by children's pranks and costumed people roaming the neighborhood but also it will keep your pet from becoming the victim of someone's cruel jokes or tricks. Be extra careful if you have a black cat.
  • If you have a protective dog that might feel threatened by strangers, keep it away from the door when trick-or-treaters arrive.
  • Make sure your pets have I.D. and collar on so that if they do get out and get lost, you can be contacted.
  • Don't give any candy to your pets even a small amount of chocolate can be fatal.  Make sure that all Halloween treats are put where your pets cannot get to them.

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
