No Scaredy-Cats Here! Stay Safe with Halloween Pet Safety Tips

Is your favorite canine sporting a pet-sized superhero cape this year? And what about your precious feline—is she ready to meow-roar in her new identity as a lion? Even the bravest of pets will need some protection from the occasional hazards of Halloween. Here are several tips for keeping pets safe during this happy (and just-a-little haunted) time of year.

1. If your pet will be wearing a costume this year, test it on him ahead of time. Look for signs of discomfort or constriction. Make sure your pet can move freely, and check that his costume won’t cause him to stumble. Even that Taco Cat costume isn’t worth it if Whiskers feels miserable.

2. Reconsider a mask—your pet’s adorable face will get plenty of attention on its own! Common sense dictates that a pet should be able to breathe, bark, or meow normally.

3. Avoid pet costumes with small parts that could be chewed off or any accessories that would present a choking hazard.

4. Keep Fido in mind, and opt for LED candles instead of real ones. You can get the same spooky effect with flameless candles, and you won’t have to worry about injury or damage due to a fire.

5. Let your pet play with his own toys, and keep him away from decorations like fake cobwebs, light strands, plastic spiders, and strings.

6. Make sure your pet’s identification tags and microchip information are up to date.

7. Leave candy duty to the adults. Even though you might like to have your furry pal at your side, it’s a good idea to keep your pet away from the front door (especially if there’s a chance he’ll become territorial or frightened and run outdoors).

8. If that sweet face seems to say “trick or treat,” let him have a pet-safe treat, as long as it isn’t out of your loot. Items on the no-list include raisins, chocolate/candy, and treats with artificial sweeteners. (And keep those candy wrappers away too.) Before Fright Night, check out these dangerous foods for dogs at Halloween, compiled by PetMD.

Back-to-School Pet Safety Tips

Are you caught up in the chaos of buying school supplies, planning new schedules, and tackling to-do lists? Keep in mind that this time of year can be a big change for your pet too. Keep your pet safe and healthy during back-to-school time with these suggestions from the ASPCA and PetMD.

1. Keep backpacks out of pets’ reach
If possible, designate an area for children to place their backpacks that is out of the way of pets. Keep school supplies such as pencils, glue sticks, markers, and scissors away from those curious four-legged furballs. Other potential hazards include batteries and medications.

2. Likewise, stash those lunch bags
Remember to keep non-human food away from pets. Don’t let your pet sniff his way into a lunchbox containing grapes, raisins, chocolate, or gum (click here for the ASPCA’s full list of people-only food).

3. Gradually increase your separation time
Slowly let your pet acclimate to more “alone” time, rather than suddenly changing his schedule and leaving him without his buddies for an entire school day. Keep your departure and return low-key, and teach children to do the same. If you remain calm, there’s a better chance your pet will too.

4. Reduce stress and boredom by providing mental stimulation
Leave a safe, sturdy puzzle toy with your dog to keep his mind active. Toys that allow your pet to chew and lick can provide stress relief.

5. Don’t neglect your pet when you are home
Fit in aerobic exercise for your dog or play with your cat each day, preferably before you leave. It’s a great time for you to bond together; plus, if he’s tired, it can help him relax while you’re away. If mornings are too hectic, make sure your pet has some evening exercise to relieve pent-up energy.

6. Consult a veterinarian if needed
If your pet’s separation anxiety is severe, don’t punish your pet. Talk to your veterinarian to determine possible underlying causes and treatment options.

10 Ways to Make Your Pet Feel Special on National Spoil Your Dog Day

Happy National Spoil Your Dog Day! We love our pets, so why not take some extra time to celebrate all the love and joy our four-legged friends give us? Make your dog feel extra special today with some pampering, playtime, or new treats! Have fun with your dog and take them to do the things they enjoy. Get inspired with these 10 ways to show your pet extra love today.

1. Bonding Time
Your pet loves spending time with you, so carve out extra quality time in your day to bond with your beloved family member. Snuggle on the bed or couch without worrying; be prepared with a pet furniture or bed cover.

2. Family Playtime
Grab a ball or stick and play fetch for an extended period today, or use a rope to play some good old tug-of-war. Let your pet run and stretch his legs and roll in the grass while you enjoy the outdoors as a family.

3. Take a Walk to the Dog Park
Get out of the house and walk around the neighborhood or take a trip to a nearby dog park. Some parks will have events and activities to celebrate this pet-friendly holiday, so if your dog loves to be social, it’s a great chance for her to meet new friends.

4. Create a Homemade Meal
Show your pooch how much she means to you by crafting a homemade meal for her. Just make sure the ingredients you choose for the meal are healthy for your dog before you start.

5. Share a Frozen Treat
Go on a yummy outing and share frozen treats with him! Find a local ice cream parlor or frozen yogurt shop that sells dog-friendly frozen treats and take your dog out for a change of pace.

6. Go Exploring
If your pup enjoys sniffing out new things and exploring new places, take him somewhere he’s never been and have an adventure together!

7. Have a Spa Day
Pamper your pet with a special spa day. Give her a pedicure, massage, or aromatherapy for an extra luxurious day at the spa.

8. Pick Out a New Toy
Show your dog how much playtime means to you by letting him pick out a new toy to play with. Enjoy the bonding time of an outing to the store and the excitement of choosing something new for him to play with.

9. Food Area Update
Spruce up her food and sleeping areas to show how much you care about her well-being. Do a special cleaning of food and water dishes, or get a personalized pet mat with slip-resistant backing to set them on.

10. Fresh and Sweet Dreams
Freshen up your dog’s sleeping space by washing the removable cover on his bed, or if it’s time to replace it, find something soft and plush with extra cushioning for comfort. For older pets, they may enjoy the pressure relief of a memory foam pet bed.

Pet Safety Tips for Fourth of July Fireworks

Can you guess the busiest day of the year for many animal shelters in the United States? According to the American Humane Association, it is July 5th—that’s right; the day after the Fourth of July. This year, make a “pledge” that your pet will not be among the many that flee their homes in a panic after unsettling firework celebrations begin. Here are just a few tips, including some from the AVMA, to keep your pet safe this Independence Day.

1. Make sure that your pet has a properly fitting collar with an attached ID tag and that all the information is up to date; likewise, check that all microchip information is current.

2. Take a picture of your pet so that you have a current photo just in case.

3. Earlier in the day, take your dog for a walk or run (but be vigilant about the summer’s heat and don’t overdo it). Exercise will help calm him and tire him out before the fireworks start.

4. Don’t take your pet to firework festivities or set off fireworks around your pet. Keep your pet indoors where he is safe; if possible, bring your outdoor pet indoors.

5. Keep exterior doors, pet doors, and windows shut to prevent a terrified pet from escaping outdoors and running away from the fireworks.

6. Lower blinds and cover windows so the bright lights of the fireworks don’t distress your pet.

7. Make sure your pet has a safe place in an interior room where he can retreat. Your pet may prefer a small, enclosed area to “hide” when he’s scared.

8. Place your pet’s favorite toys or familiar blankets nearby for comfort.

9. Turn on a calming television show, soothing music, or even a fan to help block out some of the firework noise.

10. Provide your dog with a safe chew toy to distract him and ease anxiety (and make sure cords are out of the way so they don’t become chew toys).
