With Halloween quickly approaching, there are several things to keep in mind for the safety of our furry family members.
- On Halloween, keep pets inside. With an increase in traffic around most neighbourhoods, and many people wearing costumes that can be scary to a pet, it is safest to keep your pet inside with you on Halloween.
- If your cat or dog is an escape artist, make sure they are safely secured in another room when opening the door to greet trick or treaters.
- If your pet is going to don a costume, make sure it doesn’t obstruct their vision or ability to move. Also, make sure costumes fit properly and aren’t uncomfortable (too warm or tight).
- Candy is a treat for us and a trick for our pets! Make sure candy is stored up out of your pet’s reach to avoid toxicities and obstructions caused by wrappers and packaging.
- Consider placing a collar with an ID tag on your pet if they will be greeting trick or treaters with you.
If you have any questions, please give us a call at 902.434.0700.
