Choosing safe Halloween costumes for your pet

In 2014, Americans spent an estimated $350 million on Halloween costumes for their pets.  (Source: National  Retail Federation)  That’s a lot of costumes.  But how do you know if you are choosing the RIGHT costume?

First of all, keep in mind that some pets are not comfortable in ANY type of costume.  Do not force your pet to wear a costume.  If he or she struggles and tries to get out, or looks stressed or unhappy, you are better off to look at some costume alternatives.  Be sure to follow my blog and watch for a future post on “Fun alternatives to Halloween pet costumes.”

If you think that your pet will tolerate a costume, then make sure that you do not choose one that may cause injury or discomfort.    For example:

  • Avoid any type of face or ear covering like masks that may confuse or disorient your pet.
  • Watch out for ties or decorations that hang down and could trip your pet — or get tangled in their legs..
  • Choose a costume in which your pet can easily stand and move.
  • Avoid costumes that have removable parts – that could fall off — or get chewed off — and potentially choke your pet. Or take off any removable pieces before you use the costume.
  • Avoid costumes that are restrictive in any area of your pet’s body, especially the neck. Always check to make sure you have a loose, comfortable fit around the neck, tail and legs.
  • Choose bright colors so that people can easily see your pet – especially if you are going to be in a crowded or dimly lit place.

Photo of pain workshopWe are looking forward to the THIRD of our Pawsitively Healthy workshops coming up on January 21, 2016.  The topic: Facts About Dog & Cat Vaccines.

First, we are thrilled that so many people have been signing up for the workshops.  We know how much you care about your pets –and this is a wonderful forum for you to learn about timely pet health topics and get your questions answered by veterinarian Dr. Andrea Putt of Commerce Village Veterinary Hospital.  We are so fortunate to have her on board with us for the workshops.

Second — PLEASE REMEMBER TO REGISTER EARLY!  Click here to register. Our workshops have been selling out and we have been trying to accommodate as many last-minute sign-ups as we can, but are running out of space!  We have moved the workshops into the back warehouse area to accommodate as many of our neighbors as we can.  So to guarantee yourself a seat, register early.  If for some reason you cannot make it, please feel free to give your spot to a friend or family member.

I look forward to seeing you at the January workshop!
