Trick or Treat – October 22, 2010

This month the big holiday is Halloween.

This can be a very stressful time for our pets.
The following information can apply to both cats and dogs. It is our responsibility as good pet parents to be sure that our pets are safe during this stressful time.

  1. Keep your pets inside. Do not let your cats out and do not leave your dogs in the yard.
  2. Provide a safe haven away from the door and the constant ringing of the doorbell – and the trick or treaters,

Perhaps a back bedroom, with the radio or TV on as a distraction.

  1. Keep the candy and wrappers away from your pets. Especially chocolate.

Problems can range from diarrhea and upset stomach to toxicity and even death.

Halloween is a time when bad things can happen to good pets. Unfortunately each year pets are terrorized and even killed by trick or treaters. Halloween is the time when veterinary clinics see a big rise in pet accidents. Ranging from poisoning, ingestion of foreign bodies, trauma from car accidents and bit wounds.

Happy Halloween
