As a pet lover and dog mom of two, this post was very important to me.  Please share and re-blog this post about Halloween pet safety by Gene Mundt.


2019 -  Halloween Safety Tips for Pets



The Halloween Season with all its scary costumes, parties, tasty treats, spooky decorations, and haunted homes are finally here ...
But sadly, potential dangers also arrive with it.  And that means we should be taking the time and making the effort to plan, prepare, and place safety precautions in place.  
Those preparations, plans, and safety precautions should keep our furry friends in mind for this year's Halloween Trick-or-Treating hours and parties taking place too.
Please follow the important pet safety tips found on the informative flyer below ... that way we make sure that this year's Halloween celebrations remain memorable for all the right reasons.
Protect Your Furry Family Members:
Follow These Halloween Pet Safety Tips
*  Do not ever feed a pet any candy.  
Candy, especially chocolate, can be 
lethal to an animal
*  Restrict Pets to an area where they can 
find quiet and less-stressful activities
*  Halloween can be a day of stress for family pets.  Place them out of danger
*  If a Trick-or-Treater, do NOT provoke
someone's pet, whether in a 
doorway or in a yard
*  Should you dress up your pet, do not 
restrict their movements or eyesight, 
impede their breathing, or have anything dangling off them or their costume
*  Do not allow your pet near pumpkins, especially if they contain an open flame/candle
*  Pick-up and dispose of all empty candy wrappers and 
trick-or-treat bags.  Place glow sticks and jewelry up and  out of the reach of your pet.  They can be hazardous if ingested
*  Be mindful of battery-operated decorations, electricity sources or electrical cords.  Don't allow chewing!
*  Be aware of the activity around you and all mischievous activities and people during Halloween Season
*  Make sure your pet is always properly identified (microchip, collar and ID tag).  This is in case your pet escapes through an open door while you're distracted with your visiting trick-or-treaters
*  Loud noises and sudden movements can make your
pet nervous and on-edge.  Stay aware of their reactions and emotions
* If you're entertaining for Halloween, 
keep your pets away from the festivities and 
in a safe room.  Masks and costumes change how people look and smell to a pet, so even familiar people may become frightening. 
Put a sign on the door to the safe room.  
That way your guests know it’s off-limits. 
*  Watch your kids! Don't let them share their candy with a pet
Follow the safety tips above.  That way your Halloween celebrations will be memorably safe, fun, and sweet for everyone!  
*  Mortgage Financing doesn't need to be scary.
