Pet Safety Tips For Halloween

Make sure your pets stay safe this Halloween with these tips.

Halloween is just 10 days away, which means you are most likely putting the finishing touches on your costume and stocking up on candy to hand out to trick or treaters. While getting ready for the holiday, it is important to make sure that you know how to make sure that your pets stay safe during the holiday. Keep these pet safety tips in mind to ensure that your pets can enjoy the holiday as much as you do.

  • With all the heavy traffic that comes to your front door, your pets have plenty of chances to escape. Consider setting up a dog fence inside your door to keep your pets inside.
  • Halloween is the second highest day for pets that are reported missing, after only the 4th of July. Make sure that your pets are secure in your house or in your yard.
  • While decorative candles can help to add to the overall ambiance of your house, they can be dangerous for animals. Consider using flameless candles or putting candles out of reach for all of your pets.
  • Just like candles, jack o lanterns can be dangerous for your pets. Always watch your animals around lit jack o lanterns to ensure that they are not injured by the flame.
  • If you are planning on dressing up your pet for Halloween, make sure to keep an eye on your furry friend while they are wearing their costume since many costumes can pose choking or overheating hazards.
