10 Halloween Safety Tips

604504.jpg

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruely to Animals (ASPCA) is suggesting 10 common sense cautions to help keep your pets safe and happy this upcoming Halloween.

1. No tricks, no treats: That bowlful of candy is for trick-or-treaters, not for Scruffy and Fluffy. Chocolate in all forms can be very dangerous for dogs and cats, and tin foil and cellophane candy wrappers can be hazardous if swallowed. If you suspect your pet has ingested a potentially dangerous substance, please call your veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435.

2. Popular Halloween plants such as pumpkins and decorative corn are considered to be relatively nontoxic, yet they can produce gastrointestinal upset should pets ingest them. Intestinal blockage could even occur if large pieces are ingested.

3. Keep wires and cords from electric lights and other decorations out of reach of your pets. If chewed, your pet could experience damage to his mouth from shards of glass or plastic, or receive a possibly life-threatening electrical shock.

4. A carved pumpkin certainly is festive, but do exercise extreme caution if you choose to add a candle. Pets can easily knock a lit pumpkin over and cause a fire. Curious kittens especially run the risk of getting burned or singed by candle flames.

5. Dress-up can be a big mess-up for some pets. Please don't put your dog or cat in a costume UNLESS you know he or she loves it (yup, a few pets are real hams!). For pets who prefer their “birthday suits,” however, wearing a costume can cause undue stress.

6. If you do dress up your pet, make sure the costume isn't annoying or unsafe. It should not constrict the animal's movement or hearing, or impede his ability to breathe or bark. Keep a look out for small, dangling, or easily chewed-off pieces on the costume that your pet could choke on.

7. Take a closer look at your pet’s costume and make sure it does not obstruct her vision in any way. Even the sweetest animals can get snappy when they can't see.

8. All but the most social dogs and cats should be kept in a separate room during peak trick-or-treat visiting hours. Too many strangers can be scary and stressful for pets.

9. When opening the door for trick-or-treaters, take care that your cat or dog doesn't dart outside.

10. IDs, please! Always make sure your dog or cat has proper identification. If for any reason your pet escapes and become lost, a collar and tags and/or a microchip increase the chances that he or she will be returned to you.

Halloween Safety for Your Pet

BlackCat2.jpg

We all want Halloween to be a safe time for our family. It is easy to forget about the pets, or assume they will be "all right". Here are two sources of tips to think about to prepare your pet for the busy and perhaps scary holiday.

From: Steve Dale's Pet World - Halloween and Pets: How to Be Safe


Dog trainer Peggy Moran of Lemont, IL says, “I realize that some dogs and cats are very social and enjoy people coming to the door. It’s a calculated risk, what if that kid in the Freddie Krueger mask sneezes, scares the dog and the dog lunges at the boy in the costume? Or if the cat bolts outside? Personally, I don’t like taking risks. You can minimize the risk by keeping your dog on a leash and the cat on a harness.”

Of course, you can further minimize any risk by keeping the pets off in another room all together. But don’t keep the dog in the yard on Halloween. It’s a no win situation. Moran says. “If the dog loves kids, the dog will bark and bark. If the dog is anxious because of the kids, the dog will bark and bark.”

Indoors/outdoor cats should absolutely never be allowed to roam outdoors in the days leading up to Halloween, or especially on the holiday itself. “It seems some cats are used for satanic purposes or just pranks,” says Kari Winters, an author and dog and cat rescuer from Los Angeles. Some shelters and humane societies don’t adopt black cats from mid-October through Halloween.

Veterinarians offer some more great tips here for Halloween safety. Things you may not have thought about. Don't let your pet be the victim of any Halloween pranks!

Chatterbowl

41Q9FznBj5L._AA280_.jpg

Often when we return home, our Golden Retriever Jessie is lying by the doorway to the garage, waiting for our return. Was she that lonely?

If we had a Chatterbowl, we might be less concerned. Good idea for pets left alone. Whenever the pet takes a drink from the Chatterbox, he or she can hear their owner's voice and feel comforted. Simply press record on the Chatterbowl Talkbox and speak for up to 10 seconds. Use as a water bowl or for free-feeding.
