Our 2016 and 2017 calendar girls, June and Cookie, wish you and your pets a Happy Halloween. They want to share some safety tips for your ‘best friends’ so they enjoy a safe holiday.
Cautious Costumes: If you dress up your pet, choose your costume with care. Make sure it fits well and doesn’t restrict his breathing, movement, eye sight, barking or meowing. Be mindful of and dangling pieces of fabric or buttons that can be chewed off and swallowed. If your pet seemed distressed when dressed up, it’s best to avoid the costume.
Stash the Goodies: Keep the Halloween candy far out of reach of Fido and Fluffy. Chocolate, especially dark chocolate, is dangerous for pets, and Xylitol, an artificial sweetener found in sugar free candy and gum, can also cause very serious medical problems for your pets. If you think your pet has eaten something toxic, call the ASPCA Poison Control Center at 888-426-4435 immediately.
Prevent Spooked Pets: With ghosts and goblins knocking on your door, this can be a scary and stressful time for your pet. To reduce anxiety and keep your pet from fleeing, most pets do best when kept in a separate room away from the front door. Remember, the best dressed pets this Halloween are wearing a collar with an ID tag and a microchip!
