Tips for a Healthy Happy Halloween for your Pet

I would add a #11 – Occasionally trick-or-treaters come to our door accompanied by their dog. I keep a few dog treats on hand to give to the dog’s person (not directly to the dog), and also to give our dog to reward good behavior toward the visitors.

And a #12 - Remember that children can get overstimulated and over-sugared, which adds to a household animal's stress. Please keep a watchful eye on all family members.

Repeating #5 - Please protect your black cat by keeping him indoors.

Have a safe and happy Halloween!
