Here are Some Halloween Safety Tips for Pets
So, without further ado, let’s jump right in to take a look at some Halloween safety tips for pets.
Make sure to keep the candy away from your pet’s paws. Chocolate is toxic to cats and dogs and must always be out of their reach. Candies can also contain other potentially dangerous ingredients like Xylitol, additives, and preservatives.
Moreover, sugar, in itself, is not safe for pets to consume.
2.Comfortable Costumes For Your Pet
Who doesn’t find pets in costumes adorable!? I love to dress my pets up for Halloween, but certain costumes can be uncomfortable for your pet–or even dangerous. Make sure that the costume is well-fitted and comfortable.
Try to stay away from costumes that may make your pet slip, fall, or injure himself when running around the house. It’s not worth it.
3. Some Decorations Can Be Dangerous
Certain Halloween decorations may look great in your house but aren’t worth the risk. This includes open flame candles, dry ice, jelly paint, etc. that can be potentially dangerous for your pet.
Make sure you get pet-friendly ornaments and plush toys instead.
If you’re planning to take your pet out while trick-or-treating, make sure they’ve got a reflective collar/clothing on. There’s a lot of foot traffic on the street during Halloween.
Bright clothing and a reflective collar will help make your pet visible to drivers when you’re out and about.
5. ID Tags Are Important
Your pet is not immune to getting spooked at Halloween! A loud noise or someone with a scary costume can spook your pet into running away from you.
So, make sure your pet has an ID tag or a GPS tracker on him in case he gets lost amid the chaos.
