KEEP THE TREATS AWAY FROM DOGGIES

Pet Allergies - Bad kitty feeds onions and chocolates bad for dogs

Bad Kitty – No Chocolate for the Doggies

Treats, Wrappers and Especially CHOCOLATE need to stay out of dog’s reach to help avoid tummy trouble or an emergency visit to the Vet!

A Quiet Place

If your dog gets anxious around a lot of activity, find a safe quiet place for your pet to be. Soft music and low light can help calm your pet. Make sure they have their toys and blanket.

A Safe Distance

To keep dogs and cats out of trouble, keep them away from the front door either by getting them out of the way or even using a baby/doggie gate to keep them away from trick or treaters. It’s also a good idea to keep cats inside during Halloween, lest they be caught up in mischief.

Pet Allergies

Just Like Vampires Garlic is not good for dogs. Remember anything with chocolate is a no no for dogs. This includes chocolate chip cookies and ice cream. Raisins and Grapes. Avocados are all no, not. Onions, garlic, chives. Different dogs react differently to meats as well. Beef and chicken can often be offenders.

Also onions and garlic are in a lot of dishes, make sure you are not feeding them to your pets.
