Five Pet Safety Tips for Halloween

Don’t let your pet’s Halloween go from spooky to downright deadly! Keep your pet safe with these five tips:

  1. Keep all candies, especially chocolates and anything containing xylitol, out of your pet’s reach, as they are extremely poisonous to cats and dogs.
  2. Keep black cats inside for a few days around Halloween. They are more likely to be pestered this time of year.
  3. Make sure pet costumes don’t have small pieces your pet could swallow.
  4. Keep pets away from pumpkins. Though they aren’t poisonous to cats or dogs, they can cause blockages if your pet swallows big chunks.
  5. Keep your pet away from the door so she doesn’t try to escape when you’re giving candy to trick-or-treaters.
