I’m not trying to dampen the festivities, but if you're a pet parent, I urge you to familiarize yourself with these tips for keeping pets safe at Halloween.

It’s so easy to get carried away with all your preparations that you forget there are some simple precautions that will keep Puppy Dog and Kitty Cat safe whatever spooky events unfold at your house.

You don’t want a scaredy cat or a petrified pooch, so here are tips for keeping pets safe at Halloween as advised by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

1. Trick or Treat Them Not!

If you’re throwing a party, the house is probably going to be full of candy.

If not, you’ve probably stocked up on the sweet stuff for the trick-or-treaters who come a-knocking.

The rule is – and one of the most important tips for keeping pets safe at Halloween – candy is for human consumption only.

Human candy should carry a health warning for pets.

The major culprits are chocolate in any form and candies containing xylitol, an artificial sweetener.

If you’re going to treat your pets this Halloween, use animal treats.
