Aston Veterinary Hospital : Pet Blog: Halloween Safety Tips

If you decide to dress your pet up for Halloween, your safest choice is a loose fitting bandana. Pets can get tangled in parts of a costume and may chew fabric, which can lead to foreign body.

Dogs and cats can become skittish with scary costumes and doorbell ringing. It is best to keep all pets in another quiet part of the house during Halloween.

Be cautious where you leave Halloween goodies. Candy and chocolate can be very toxic to pets. Artificial sweetners, such as Xyitol, can pose a serious threat.

Pick up all wrappers and lollipop sticks as they can become a potential danger to pets if ingested.

Have a happy and safe Halloween!
