🎆 Fireworks and Frightened Fidos 🎆 While fireworks can be a dazzling spectacle for us humans, they can be a terrifying experience for our pets. The loud noises and bright flashes can cause anxiety and stress, which may lead to pets running away or injuring themselves in an attempt to escape. North Vancouver Vet

Tip 1: Create a safe space for your pets indoors, away from the noise. Play soothing music or white noise to drown out the sound of fireworks.

Tip 2: Make sure your pets have proper identification, like a collar with an updated ID tag or a microchip. This will help reunite you with your pet if they happen to escape.

Tip 3: Consult with our veterinarians about anxiety management options, such as calming supplements or medications, to help your pet relax during the Halloween festivities. North Vancouver Vet

🍬 Tricky Treats: Candy Cautions 🍬 Halloween candy is oh-so-tempting but can be dangerous for our pets. Many candies, especially those containing chocolate or artificial sweeteners like xylitol, are toxic to animals.

Tip 1: Keep all Halloween candy out of your pet's reach. Dogs, in particular, have a sweet tooth and might be quick to snatch a treat. North Vancouver Vet

Tip 2: If you suspect your pet has ingested candy, contact our clinic or an emergency vet immediately. Quick action can make all the difference. North Vancouver Vet

Tip 3: Consider pet-safe Halloween treats to satisfy your furry friend's sweet cravings. There are plenty of pet-friendly options available at our clinic. North Vancouver Vet

🎃 Spooky but Safe Decorations 🎃 Halloween decorations can add a spooky ambiance to your home, but be mindful of decorations that might pose a threat to your pets. Wires, candles, and small decorations can be hazards. North Vancouver Vet

Tip: Opt for pet-safe decorations or keep potentially dangerous items out of reach. Battery-operated candles can provide a safe alternative to traditional ones.

👻 Pet Halloween Costume Parade 👻 Want to make Halloween extra special for your pet? Consider dressing them up in a cute, pet-safe costume and have a mini costume parade at home. Just make sure the costume is comfortable, and your pet can move freely without any restrictions. North Vancouver Vet
