This came in an email and just thought I'd share it with you. Feel free to add anything you think is important to share regarding our "babies" safety.
Keep your Pet away from the front door. Dogs in particular may feel the need to protect their home and may be more likely to bite any visitors who appear out of the ordinary. *added by me: some have put baby gates up at the front door to allow their Havs to be able to see/participate in giving out candy but, to not have to worry about them running out the door every time it's opened.
Ensure decorations cannot be pulled down. Your Pet could become injured by or even entangled in decorations, so make sure you keep them Pet-friendly.
Do not take your cat or dog with you in the car while your kids go trick-or-treating. It can be very frightening to a Pet to sit in a dark car while scary creatures of every size and shape walk by. A Pet that is normally friendly can become aggressive and protective.
Do not give your Pet candy.
Chocolate contains theobromine, a substance that can
be lethal if ingested by your Pet.
Sticks on caramel apples can be swallowed and cause choking or damage to internal organs.
Packaging can cause choking or intestinal blockage. Foil wrappers can become as dangerous as razors when swallowed.
Keep your Pet inside. There are plenty of stories of vicious pranksters who have teased, injured, or even stolen Pets that are left in their yards. Make sure your Pet is safely inside your home.
At our house, we spell happiness H-A-V-A-N-E-S-E
