Happy Howl-O-Ween!

Here are a few tips to keep your dog happy and safe!
Have a Howlin' great Halloween!
No tricks, no treats: That bowl of candy is for trick-or-treaters, not for your pup. Chocolate can be very dangerous for dogs. Candies and gums containing the artificial sweetener xylitol can also cause problems. If you do suspect your pet has ingested something toxic, please call your veterinarian or animal poison control center.
  • If you dress up your dog, 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, bark. It shouldn't have any items that could get caught and cause Fido an injury.
  • Pumpkins are festive, but they can cause stomach upset in dogs who nibble on them. Use caution if adding a candle to carved pumpkins. A burned dog isn't a happy dog.
  • Be aware that door bell ringing and lots of people can cause unwanted stress to your dog. Keep them in a separate room and use calming techniques to reduce their stress.
  • Make certain your dog has proper identification! If your pet becomes lost or escapes a tag and or microchip can be a lifesaver!
