Halloween safety tips for pets
SALT LAKE CITY — Although Halloween can be a fun time to dress your furry friend up, it’s important to remember some tips and tricks to keep pets safe.
The Utah Humane Society said in a release that treats containing chocolate or xylitol should be kept away from animals. While on the topic of treats, if you have kids keep their candy out of hiding spots as dogs have strong noses to sniff them out.
Also, be aware that loud noises and animatronics could be scary for pets. Avoid areas with large holiday displays.
Halloween night may be chaotic, so have a plan for your pets to ensure they aren’t alone if loud noises and animatronics are an issue. Lastly, the Humane Society reminds owners to not force unwanted costumes onto pets, even if it’s too cute to handle.
We want to hear from you.
