Halloween night is often a fun night filled with candy, friends, and fun costumes. While the night may be fun for you and your family, it might not be so fun for your pet. In fact, Halloween is one of
1. Keep Candy and Decorations Out of Reach
Candy—no matter what kind it
Additionally, you should make sure that your decorations are out of reach for your pets. Pumpkins, corn, and hay should all be kept away from your pet because they can cause your pet to have an upset tummy. You should also keep other decorations, such as lights or webbing, away from your pet if they like to chew on these things; as eating decorations can cause stomach problems and blockage.
2. Bring Pets Indoors
If you normally leave your pets outside, you should bring them in on Halloween night. All the people coming and going, the costumes, and loud noises can scare pets. So bring them indoors to keep them safe, comfortable, and happy.
3. Keep Pets Away From Flames
If you plan to light your jack-o-lanterns on Halloween night, make sure your pet cannot reach them. Curiosity—or even a distraction—can cause your pet to walk right into the flame. Even if you just have a small candle inside, it is best to keep it out of reach of your pet so that they do not burn themselves.
4. Confine Pets
Finally, if you plan to stay home on Halloween night you might want to consider confining your pet. With the door opening and closing constantly—and strangers coming and going—your beloved pet might begin to feel anxious, irritated, or scared. This can cause your pet to lash out, bite, or try to escape. So keep your pet away from the front door for the night.
