Pet safety tips for Halloween

  • Create a Safe Room

    To avoid stress or an escape when the door is opened for trick-or-treaters, keep your pet in a quiet, calm area.

  • Stay Indoors

    While the streets are full of ghouls and goblins, it's best to keep your pets safely indoors.

  • Stash the Treats

    Chocolate and other candy can be toxic to your pet, so keep them safely stored and away from your pets.

  • Keep Costumes Safe

    Keep it comfortable to avoid overheating, chewing on loose pieces, or getting tangled.

  • Avoid Burns

    Keep lit pumpkins out of reach or use LED lights to keep excited dogs and curious cats from getting hurt by an open flame.

  • Be Prepared for the Unexpected

    In case of a frightening injury or illness, a Petsecure policy can help with scary vet bills.
