5 Tips For Pet Parents This Halloween

Halloween Kitty

Halloween is a time for dressing up in your favorite costume, trick-or-treating with the little ones, or going to parties. But pets can sometimes get spooked by all the festivities and costumes. To keep your pets safe, here are 5 tips for pet parents this Halloween.

dog in witch costume1. If you decide to dress up your furry friend, please make sure it does not limit their movement, sight or ability to breathe. Some pets may not enjoy being dressed up as much as others and this can cause them stress and discomfort.

2. Keep pets indoors and in a safe area during trick-or-treating. Whether you’re the one trick-or-treating or you’re passing out the candy at home, leaving your pets indoors is usually the safest option during this holiday. Costumes can scare dogs and cats just as much as us humans.

Halloween Candy Corn

3. Stash the candy! Keeping all forms of candy away from pets is best practice. Several treats, especially chocolate, are toxic and potentially lethal to pets. If you suspect your pet has ingested something toxic, please call your veterinarian immediately.

Halloween Decorations4. Keep an eye out for the decorations. While we love the look of festive and spooky Halloween decorations, pets may want to play with or eat them. Decorations, like a lit pumpkin, can be dangerous, so make sure they are in a safe place that Fluffy can’t get to or knock over.

Dog Sleeping

5. Send your dog on a Halloween sleepover with a few nights of Boarding at Best Friends Pet Hotel. Sometimes it’s easiest to not have to worry about the dog eating candy or the cat escaping out the front door. They’ll be safe and sound with our experienced pet care staff.

Dogs Having The Best Summer Ever

Dogs having the best summer ever

Summer is a time of vacations and travel or simply relaxing at home for a staycation. As much as we would love for our dogs to accompany us on all of our adventures, we often must leave our furry friends at home in the care of someone we trust.

But fret not! Best Friends Pet Hotel is your pet’s version of a vacation. With Labor Day weekend quickly approaching, the fun is just heating up! Pools, forts, bubbles, and Doggy Day Camp parties are just a few of the ways your pup is sure to have a great end to their summer!

Here are some dogs that are having the best summer ever at Best Friends Pet Hotel.

Check The Chip

Check the chip day

What is ‘Check The Chip Day’ you ask? August 15th is a day to raise awareness with pet owners to register and update their pet’s microchip. Though many Americans have their pets microchipped, only about 60% are actually registered or have up-to-date information in the microchip registry.

Did you know that microchipped dogs are more than twice as likely to be returned home to their owners and microchipped cats are more than 20 times as likely to be returned to their owners? It’s true! Registering and updating your pet’s microchip can make all the difference when finding a lost pet and helping them get back home to you.

If your pet is already microchipped, you can look up the details to ensure their chip has updated owner information, here. If your pet has yet to be microchipped, make an appointment with your vet as soon as you can.

Make sure to check out this video about why you should microchip your pet!
