Halloween Hints for Pets

3. Strangely-dressed strangers coming repeatedly to the door! Bells ringing, ghosts wailing, sound effects! And we ourselves put on costumes, looking and sounding differently than usual. Minimize stress for your pets and if they are anxious, put them in a quiet room with the door shut. Don't take your pet trick-or-treating and remember that a scary mask can frighten a dog as much as it can a small child.

4. Many people enjoy putting costumes on their pets. Remember that some pets can become scared, irritated, or uncomfortable in costumes. A Halloween bandana might be enough!

5. Remember our curious cats, some of whom are attracted to the glow sticks which have become popular in recent years. Using a glow stick as a chew toy can cause mouth irritation and foaming.
