As much as you and your children might enjoy Halloween, this particular holiday can be a stressful one for pets. They don’t understand why you have decorations and carved pumpkins with candles in them around the house and naturally feel curious enough to investigate. Your dog or cat may end up swallowing something inedible or even starting a fire by knocking over a candle. These are just two of several Halloween safety concerns to keep in mind. Weckwerth Animal Hospital wants to provide the following safety tips to help keep your pets safe and happy during the month of October.
- Fifteen human years by the end of the first year
- An additional nine human years for the second year
