Happy Halloween! The fall holiday is almost here and the team at Kryder Veterinary Clinic wants to make sure that the pets of our community are safe at all times. The Halloween season brings with it many dangers that can affect our best friends, but as a pet owner, you can help to protect them! We’ve offered a number of fall season tips for pet owners below, but if you have questions or concerns about your pet’s health and well-being, please contact us!
Pest Prevention Continues Into the Fall
When the weather starts to get cooler, many pet owners are under the impression that the threat of potential pests lessens, but the truth is that it actually increases! Pests like fleas and ticks are looking for warm hosts and your pet is the perfect choice. Make sure that you’re still using all pest preventatives year round!
Candy & Sweets Are Poison to our Pets!
Halloween is a season of fun costumes, festive decorations, and tasty treats, but it can also be a season of dangers for our best friends! Make sure that your pet is provided with treats that are safe for them and never given a human treat such as chocolate or candy, especially sugar free candy which contains an ingredient that is toxic for pets.
Pet Halloween Costume Safety
Are you dressing your four-legged friend up in a costume this Halloween? Pets in costumes are the cutest things, but as a pet owner, it’s important to remember that it’s your responsibility to make sure they are also comfortable and safe in their costume!
