Keep Your Pets Safe on Halloween

We know Halloween is all about the kids trick-or-treating. But, it’s also a time of year that could be harmful to your family’s pet.

Here are some Halloween Safety Tips from the ASPCA to keep your furry family members safe:

1. Candy

2. Decorations can be dangerous

Jack-o-lanterns lit with candles can be easily knocked over by a pup happy to see visitors or a kitty who is curious about the carved face. Use caution. Plus, Halloween plants such as pumpkins and decorative corn are considered relatively nontoxic, but can produce stomach discomfort in pets who nibble on them.

3. Careful with Costumes

Keep Pets Calm and Easily Identifiable

While opening the door for guests, be sure that your dog or cat doesn’t dart outside. And always make sure your pet it wearing proper identification—if for any reason he or she does escape, a collar with ID tags and/or a microchip can be a lifesaver for a lost pet.

Here’s hoping you have a happy and safe Halloween!
