We all love the change in seasons when the nights get longer and the leaves crunch underfoot.
However, with autumn in full swing its not long until Halloween or Bonfire Night which can put our pets in danger.
To keep your pets safe, follow our top tips:
- Do not feed cats or dogs chocolate or sweets as they can be highly toxic
- Similarly, be careful to dispose of the sweet wrappers carefully
- Pet costumes are one of the great joys of Halloween but if you do put your pet in a costume, ensure your pet is happy and comfortable; the costume should not restrict their movement or breathing and there are no trip hazards! Your pets safety should always be the first priority.
- Halloween also brings the potential for lots of unexpected visitors to your door. Keep your pet in a calm environment and prevent them from being at the door to ensure they dont escape and arent scared by any brilliant costumes they might see. Should they happen to run out, make sure to keep your microchip details up to date.
- Bonfire Night poses slightly different risks but much in the same vein: dogs and cats rarely respond well to loud and unexpected noises so keep them inside and away from any potential escape routes.
- If your pet is particularly affected by the noise, leaving a radio or TV on at a low level should help mask the worst of it.
- Draw the curtains or blinds.
- Make sure your pet has a cosy place to curl up in, whether this is under the bed, on your lap or in a crate.
We hope these tips help you prepare your pet for a spooktacular Halloween and cosy Bonfire Night.
