Halloween Pet Safety Tips…

Posted: 30th October 2018

The sky will grow dark, street lights will glow, pumpkins will be lit and creepy crawlies, ghouls, goblins and Trick or Treaters’ will make their way step by step up your garden path…

With an unusual amount of visitor’s toing and froing, strange noises and scary costumes, Halloween can be a stressful time for your pet- so please spare a thought and be extra careful when answering your door not to let your cat or dog dart outside.

Every year more than 300,000 treasured pets go missing. Petlog, the Tracer Advance database, handles more and more calls every day reporting lost and found pets.

Pets can go missing for a variety of reasons especially during the Halloween and firework season…

Having a microchip implanted is quick, simple and very cost effective. It will give you the peace of mind that, if your pet does become lost, you will have more chance of being reunited faster. You may also avoid the possibility of your pet being rehomed or kept in a shelter.

Pet Safety Tips…

Chocolate and sweets

  • Chocolate and sweets can be toxic to your pet, so please keep them safely stored and away from your pets.

Costumes

  • Keep it comfortable to avoid overheating, chewing on loose pieces, or get tangled

Pumpkins / jack-o-Lanterns

  • Keep candles out of reach or use LED lights to keep excited dogs and curious cats from getting hurt by open flames.

The Door

  • Avoid stress of an escape when the door is opened for trick-or-treaters, keep your pet in a quiet, calm area.

Stay indoors

  • While the streets maybe full of ghouls and goblins, it may be best to keep your pets safely indoors

Stay safe and have fun!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN
