Pet Safety

It's past the middle of October. Now is the time to decide (if you have not already done so) if you are going to get a costume for your pet for Halloween. The pet stores I have been to have a large selection of costumes to choose from if you are inclined to have your pet participate.

When choosing pet costumes try to select safe ones. Be wary of costumes that are adorned with sparkles as they can be licked off. Be on the lookout for dangly metal objects that can come off and be swallowed by your pet which presents a choking hazard. And finally, be extra careful of the plastic bags you bring the costumes home in that your pet could get into to hide (in case he/she does not like the costume you picked out :-)) which could cause suffocation.

A little extra caution on your part will go a long way in keeping your pet safe.
