Any holiday can be a lot of fun, but it is always important to consider safety from every angle – and for every member of your family, including the furry ones! Halloween, in particular, is a time of year that calls for lots and lots of sugary treats, which unfortunately can be very dangerous for your pets. As you prepare for the holiday and enjoy the spoils of this trick-or-treat season, be sure to take the proper precautions to prevent any health or life-threatening emergencies. This educational infographic outlines some of the most dangerous items for your pet to ingest, annual statistics, and a number of tips on what to do if your dog does consume candy or treats. For any time of year, not just Halloween, it is always a good idea to keep a copy of your veterinarian’s and local emergency clinic’s phone numbers and hours in an easy-to-access location in your home.
