Top 3 Halloween tips

1. Trick-or-treat candies are not for pets.

All forms of chocolate -- especially baking or dark chocolate -- can be dangerous, even lethal, for dogs and cats. Symptoms of chocolate poisoning may include vomiting, diarrhea, rapid breathing, increased heart rate, and seizures. Halloween candies containing the artificial sweetener xylitol can alsobe poisonous to dogs. Even small amounts of xylitol can cause a suddendrop in blood sugar and subsequent loss of coordination and seizures.And while xylitol toxicity in cats has yet to be established, it'sbetter to be safe than sorry.

 

2. Don't leave pets out in the yard on Halloween.

Surprisingly, vicious pranksters have been known to tease, injure,steal, and even kill pets on Halloween night. Inexcusable? Yes! Butpreventable nonetheless.

 

3. Keep pets confined and away from the door.

Not only will your door be constantly opening and closing onHalloween, but strangers will be dressed in unusual costumes and yelling loudly for their candy. This, of course, is scary for our furryfriends. Dogs are especially territorial and may become anxious and growl at innocent trick-or-treaters. Putting your dog or cat in asecure room away from the front door will also prevent them from darting outside into the night … a night when no one wants to be searching for a lost loved one.
