Halloween Pet Safety

Be sure to keep your pet in a protected area where your pet feels safe! Spooked pets can get lost. Doorbells and excited trick-or-treaters can make pets nervous. Opening the door for costumed kids can make for an easy escape. Try to plan ahead and prepare a safe, quiet room for your cat or dog to relax in. Make sure that your pet has an ID tag with current information, just in case they get scared and escape.

Playing soothing music or turning on the television to muffle loud noises outside can also help. Use Psy-stabil natural homeopathic drops or Happy Paws Hemp Extract to calm your pet.  Do not leave your pet outdoors on Halloween.

Halloween Safety Tips For Pets

Please follow these important precautions to ensure that you and your your pets have a safe and happy holiday!

1) Keep candy (chocolate is toxic) away from pesky paws! Many of our pets display amazing dexterity to reach those delicious sweet treats. Gum and diet candies are also toxic if they contain Xylitol. Xylitol can have fast, fatal consequences because it can cause a precipitous drop in blood sugar (acute hypoglycemia) and/or liver failure. It is easy to leave a pack of gum sitting out on the counter or on the car seat. Doublecheck before bedtime to make sure that the candy and gum has been stored in a secure cabinet in all rooms!

2) Watch out for Jack O'Lanterns and burning candles. Pets can easily knock them over, starting a fire. Electrical cords can be fun for a puppy to chew on. Be extra vigilant about keeping an eye out for your pet's location and activities.

3) Keep all cats (particularly black cats) and shy, nervous dogs safely inside a room away from the noise. Doorbells and excited trick-or-treaters can be very scary to them.

4) If your dog is happy greeting guests (and may even like to dress up!), then be sure to hold your dog firmly on a leash when you open the door. Masks and costumes can be very confusing to pets. Even a very calm dog might snap if a scary figure in a dark costume rapidly approaches them and the dog feels threatened.

5) Be sure all pets are fed and walked before trick-or-treaters arrive.
