Pets and Halloween

Halloween can be stressful for your pet.

Halloween is the best time of the year, especially for kids but it can be very stressful for your pet.
pets might get confused, anxious, or scared not only from all the noisy kids coming to your door dressed up in strange cloth but also from the decoration especially the ones that often make sounds or make sudden moves.

So October walks can be frightening for them.

What should I do for my Pet in Halloween?

Keep them Calm

watch for signs and Anxiety, keep them calm and away from doors and windows, With the door always opening and closing for trick-or-treaters, your pet will have plenty of opportunities to escape.

Although some pets may be used to spending evenings playing in the yard, we recommend keeping them indoors on Halloween night.

so Keep your cat or dog in a quiet room of the house away from the front door, such as the laundry room or a guest bedroom, and give them a treat or toy to distract them, you might also need to add some white noise like keeping the TV on or turn on music.

Keep Candies away

Halloween is the season of candies and some pets are curious to try them, so remember that chocolate is by far the biggest offender, but other candies can be dangerously high in fat and sugar which is bad for your pet, also candy wrappers are fatal if your pet swallowed it.

Chocolate poisoning symptoms:
  • Vomiting or Diarrhea
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Rapid breathing
  • Seizures
Sugar-Free Candy

Sugar-free candy often contains xylitol, a sugar substitute that is safe for humans but poisonous to dogs. Even small amounts of xylitol can cause low blood sugar, seizures, liver failure and even death in dogs.

Outdoor Pets and Halloween tips

Keep their ID with you.

Even the most well-behaved pets can submit to a fight. Halloween pet safety must involve checking your pet’s collar and ID tags. Even if you’re not going out together on Halloween, gear up your pet in reflective or light up gear in case they bolt through the front door or hop the back gate.

Microchipping is an excellent route to reunion. If your contact information has changed since your pet’s chip was registered, we encourage you to update it with the manufacturer.


they are fun and make us laugh but keep in mind not to force your pet to wear it, If you plan on dressing your dog or cat up in a costume during Halloween, make sure to try it on them for a few minutes a day or 2 before Halloween.

Make sure any costumes fit right and don’t block their vision, hearing, or ability to breathe, and remove any small parts that are chewable. Even after adjusting to a costume, your pet might still show signs of being uncomfortable wearing something unfamiliar.
