PET SAFETY TIPS FOR HALLOWEEN

So it's that time of year again when we humans enjoy to be spooked, but it can be extremely stressful and scary for our pets. To keep our furry friends safe follow our precautionary tips:-

  • Do not feed your cats & dogs chocolate and sweets, as what may seem like a harmless treat can be extremely toxic to them. Keep treats out of reach of your pets and dispose of any wrappers in the bin. 
  • If you choose to dress your pet in a costume, ensure that they are happy, comfortable, that they are not restricted and that there are no lose parts. Although they may look cute their safety is more important.
  • Try and keep pets in a calm environment away from the door as people will be trick-or-treating. They may become frightened and bolt out into the road (it's always best that pets have up-to-date identity tags in case this should happen). 
  • Keep them indoors! Whilst most people are having fun on Halloween there are also a lot of pranksters out there. Keep your pets indoors to prevent them being part of someone else's joke.
  • We love to decorate our homes at Halloween, so just make sure that candles/ pumpkins are kept out of reach and that there are no small pieces of decoration that can be swallowed by your pets.

So by following these helpful tips, pet and humans should all be able to enjoy a spooktacular Halloween.
