Halloween Safety Tips for your Pet

Cat Dog Pumpkin

Halloween can be a fun time for children and families, but for your pet it can be a different story. Here are some recommendations to keep your pet safe:

No treats
All forms of chocolate can be dangerous, even lethal, for dogs and cats. Make sure all your treats are out of reach from your four legged friend and saved for the ghosts and ghouls!

Knock knock…
..who’s there? Not only will your door be busy on Halloween, but strangers will be dressed in unusual costumes. This, of course, is scary for our furry friends. Putting your dog or cat in a secure room away from the front door can help manage their anxieties.

It goes without saying to take care whilst carving your pumpkin – but in addition be careful where you place lit pumpkins once you have created your master piece! Put them in a safe place out of reach of your pet – should they get too close, they run the risk of burning themselves or knocking it over and causing a fire.

Dress up
Remember, your furry friend is happiest wearing their ‘birthday suit’ but should you decide to buy an outfit for your pet, make sure it is practical – that they can move freely and comfortably. If they show any signs of discomfort take it off.

We hope you enjoy a spook free Halloween!
