See what we did there?
Halloween is a fun time of year. There’s pumpkin spice, apple cider, crisp air, and cute kids in costumes. However, it’s not the most fun for our pets. Here are a few tips on how to keep them safe this Halloween.
Don’t feed your pets Halloween candy, especially if it contains chocolate or xylitol (a common sugar substitute found in sugar-free candies and gum). Make sure your pet is properly identified (microchip, collar and ID tag) in case your pet escapes through the open door while you’re distracted with trick-or-treaters. Keep lit candles and jack-o-lanterns out of reach of pets.
If your pet is wary of strangers or has a tendency to bite, put him/her in another room during trick-or-treating hours or provide him/her with a safe hiding place.
