Pets and Halloween

Pets and Halloween

Halloween can be a frightening experience for your pets.

Be aware that black cats and kittens are at serious risk in the last half of October. Keep them inside. Most shelters will not allow black cats to be adopted during this time.

Keep your pets away from the door and out of hearing of the doorbell during the high traffic of Halloween night.

Don't make it easy for your pet to slip out and become disoriented with those unfamiliar creatures in the neighborhood. Your normally placid pet may be frightened enough to bite an unsuspecting ghost or goblin who is trying to be friendly.

Even if you know your pet will be confined, his or her tags or other identification are essential Halloween wear.

Lock your gates if your dog must stay outside.

The "trick" may be on you.

Candy, and especially chocolate, is not healthy for pets. Keep all sweets out of your pet's way.

If your pet does eat chocolate, watch for vomiting or restlessness, and call your veterinarian for advice.

A wrapper around the candy won't deter your pet, and might get stuck in the animal's throat, or cause stomach upset.

Sticks on candy apples or lollipops may be swallowed and cause an obstruction or perforation of your pet's stomach or bowels.

If you dispose of left-over candy, make sure it is pet proof.
