Halloween Safety for Pets!2015-10-14 11:25:34 Posted By Jila Rezai
Halloween isn't just for kids. Pets are joining the festivities too, but it's important to keep safety in mind while you celebrate. To make Halloween a real treat for pets and ensure they stay safe and happy, PetSmart has a few tips to keep in mind:
Entertaining at Home: is your dog easily spooked? Even the friendliest pet may be alarmed by a ghost or witch at the front door. One of the best ways to help eliminate unwanted surprises is by establishing a safe, pet's only room in the house. This may also put trick-or treaters who are uncomfortable around pets at ease.
Pet Friendly Treats: Chocolate is particularly tempting for pets, but it can make them seriously ill. Pet parents should keep all Halloween candy out of pets' reach. Also, choose a treat that will help pets celebrate Halloween and includes health benefits.
Safety First: Is your pet ready to step out on the street? Reflective leashes, collars and ID tags with flashing lights are essential accessories for any pet Halloween costume. Pets should also have proper identification that includes pet parents' contact information. Finally, make sure that an adult is holding the leash and that the pet is at ease around strangers and crowds.
