Pet Tips of the week

Top 5 Halloween Tips

1.  Lock candy safely away. Dogs seem to have a great way of sniffing candy out. So, make sure you call the vet if your animal has ingested candy especially with chocolate or sugar-free candy with xylitol.

2.  Don't leave glow sticks around. Even though many of them state they are non toxic, the material in the stick has a bitter taste. When an animal tastes this, it can make them drool and run around the house.  A treat or a glass of milk can help with the taste of this.

3.  Keep your pet identified and visible.  When taking your pet out and about, there are going to be many people and keeping your pet identified will help if they get lost. You want to have a vest or something that can reflect light to help drivers and others see the animal.

4.  Keep your pet calm. Sometimes even the calmest animals will have anxiety when they see so many different people dressed up in different and strange ways. If they continue to have increased anxiety, you may want to talk to your vet to find ways to keep them calm.

5. Check those costumes. Make sure if you put a costume on your pet that it fits well and does not slip down or around them where they can choke or irritate them. Make sure that there are no items on the costume that they can chew and swallow that can get stuck in their digestive tract.
