With All Hallows Eve just a few days away, Pet Patrol Director, Cindy Cafaro, has posted a few Halloween safety tips for our furry friends on


First, pet owners should remember that candy is for kids, not pets.  Chocolate can be very unhealthy for dogs and cats and even cause vomiting, increased thirst, a higher heart rate, and even seizures.

Residents should also remember to keep curious pets from eating parts of pumpkins, jack-o-lanterns, and decorative corn because, while those items are non-toxic, they can cause digestive issues for pets.

If you decide to dress your pet in a Halloween costume, make sure the animal can breathe, bark, or meow.

Cindy has several other safety tips courtesy of the ASPCA on the Health Tips for our Animals and Friends section of the Pet Patrol page.
