In a perfect world, holidays would be wholeheartedly enjoyed by everyone without having to worry about any potential accidents or trouble. While pets can definitely participate in various holiday shenanigans, that doesn’t mean certain Halloween pet safety rules can be ignored. We all want the best for our pets, so as long as we maintain a cautious approach to this rather scary holiday (for pets and some people alike), our pets will remain safe from harm.
Possibly the largest offender to Halloween pet safety is–you guessed it–chocolate! Not only is chocolate highly toxic to pets, but it’s usually wrapped in plastic, foil, or cellophane, which is also harmful if swallowed. Remember, the darker the chocolate, the more dangerous it is. This has to do with chemicals in chocolate called methylxanthines, which work like caffeine and can cause poisoning in pets.
