Halloween is the worst time for your pets. For a dog and a cat. They often get so scared that they just runaway from the house and sometimes never return. During that time you have to keep your pets safe at all times with these 7 easy ways you can do so.
- Nice and long walks
In the morning of Halloween day bring your dogs for a long walks before all the fireworks will began. Try to do the same thing with a cat on your bag garden.
- Calming sprays and tablets
Remedy de-stressing and calming spray can be bought at any vet clinic and pet shop. It will calm your dog/cat and make it less stressed during the firework time.
- Keep your dogs indoor
When the fireworks begin never take your dog out for any walks as he might get scared and run away from you. This time is very stressful for our pets, so keep them indoor nice and cosy.
- Close all windows and doors
Keep all the doors and windows closed to minimise the firework noise and reduce the stress in your pets. Especially if you have cats at home. People can be cruel and throw them into bonfires just for fun. IT’S NOT FUNNY.
- Make sure your pets are microchipped and have collars on
All your pets should be microchipped that’s the law in Ireland. Make sure your pets are microchipped and are wearing collars during Halloween just in case they manage to escape the house or someone leaves the doors open. That way you can find your pet easier.
- Try to keep your pets busy during Halloween
By keeping your pets entertained you are reducing their stress as they are not concentrating on the noise. You can play with them use their favourite toys or try teaching them new tricks using treats.
