Happy Halloween from Prevent Pet Suffocation! 🎃👻
Here are a few things to remember as you celebrate tonight:
👻 Costumes - Though it’s fun to dress our pets up in costumes, make sure your pet is comfortable in the costume before Halloween. Ensure there are no choking or chewing hazards on the costume your pet may ingest and that their hearing or vision is not inhibited by the costume.
🍭 Candy - Yum! Just make sure your pet has no access to the candy and treats especially if they include xylitol, chocolate, nuts, or raisins, which are very toxic to animals.
🎃 Decorations - Festive decorations like pumpkins, gourds, fake spider webs, burning candles, glow sticks, and loud scary noise makers can also tempt or scare your pet. Always keep an eye on them!
🍬 Candy Bags and Treat Bags - To prevent pet suffocation, keep all candy bags and food bags safely out of reach of your pets. Cut them up and safely discard them. Pets can suffocate within minutes once they put their head in a bag. Make sure your children are aware of these dangers, too, and that their Halloween loot is safely stored away from your furry family members.
Have a very happy and safe Halloween!
