Trick or Treat? A quick guide to animal safety this Halloween

Paws off
Keep treats off of the floor and out of reach of your pets. Chocolate in all forms is harmful to cats and dogs if you suspect that your pet has eaten chocolate look out for the following symptoms:

  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • Rapid Breathing
  • Seizures

If you notice these symptoms take your pet to The Vet immediately – the more details you can provide the better, including: their breed, approx. weight, amount eaten and when.

There’s somebody at the door!
Even the most social dog can become stressed from a knock at the door during peak trick-or-treating hours. Provide a safe and quiet place for them away from the high traffic area to avoid excess noise and unwanted attention.

Pumpkins
Carved pumpkins look great but consider the risk if your cat swipes at the candle or the fire-risk if the lantern is knocked over.
Don’t forget the chips!

If your pet escapes or doesn’t return for any reason and becomes lost, a collar with an ID tag and an up-to-date Microchip is essential in getting them back home. Don’t forget that The Vet offers micro chipping from £9.99.
