When thinking about Halloween safety, it's easy to overlook your pets. But they are among the most vulnerable to the horrors of Halloween.
So to make sure your pets are not lost in the shuffle of the festivities.
The Humane Society of America offers these tips that will help make sure they stay healthy and happy this Halloween.
First, leave your pets out of the celebration. This holiday is for humans. Don't let your pets roam when friends are coming over for a party, or when trick or treaters are at the door. Costumes are confusing and often frightening to pets.
Tip two: hide the sweets. Candy can be harmful to animals and sweeteners used in many foods, chocolate and gum are the most hazardous to your pet.
Tip three: decorate safely. If you are dressing up your home for the big day, do so with minimal impact to your pet. Changes to their environment make animals nervous and anxious.
Experts also recommend setting up a safe room, undecorated, for your pet to hide out in safely during the night.
Finally, never leave pets alone with decorations. Many are toxic and choking hazards.
Following these tips can help you and your pet enjoy Halloween.
