Halloween capitalizes on being the scariest holiday, but one family member you may not be thinking about is the most susceptible to Halloween frights: pets! Emergency calls to vets at the Pet Poison Helpline increase be 12 percent the week of Halloween. And, while it may not sound like a large number, it makes for the call center’s business time of year.

In order to keep pets safe this Halloween, and minimize fright, watch out for some of the biggest risks to our furry friends health and safety:

  • Glow sticks
  • Candy wrappers
  • Open doors
  • Chocolate
  • Candy with xylitol
  • Halloween decorations
  • Pet costumes
  • Candy toxicity
  • Candles
  • Rotten pumpkins

In order to ensure that your pets are safe, leave your pet at home in a place that is secure. Make sure they are wearing their collars and that treats are out of their reach. And, always make sure you and your pets are protected with pet insurance! Contact The Yurconic Agency today to learn more.
