With Pet and Home Care, it’s all treats and no tricks!

We all enjoy celebrating this spook-tacular holiday, yet Halloween can be dangerous for our boo-loved pets. Pet and Home Care has some helpful tips to keep your furry friends safe this Halloween. First, stash the treats! Chocolate is especially hazardous for animals, and can even be lethal in large doses. Keep an eye for symptoms of chocolate poisoning. Sugar-free candies containing the artificial sweetener xylitol can also cause serious problems in pets. Additionally, it’s vital to keep pets confined and away from the door-dogs may become anxious or territorial from frequent trick-or-treaters. Make sure to keep wires, decorations, electric cords and lit jack-o-lanterns out of reach. Click here to see PetMD’s Top 10 Halloween Safety Tips for Pets.

Got The Purr-fect Costume?
Enter Our Contest!

dogs-trick-or-treatThink your pet has the best Halloween costume? Enter our contest for a chance to win a free pet-friendly gift basket! Dressing up your four-legged family member can be fun and festive; though it is essential to make sure your pet’s costume is comfortable and safe. Stay away from costumes that restrict movement, breathing or vision, and the ability to bark and meow. Be sure to put your pet’s costume on for a test run before the big night to check for discomfort, allergies, or abnormal behavior. If your pet’s costume passes the safety test, we want to see it!
