Hair-Raising Halloween Health Haunts

   Halloween can be a fun-filled time for everyone, including your pets if you take the correct precautions.

• Only dress your pet up if they enjoy the process. Costumes that are too confining or block their vision are to be avoided. We usually dress the Bayou Boys up for their photo session and then we are done. They do not participate in trick or treating and we don’t go to pet costume contests. If your pet decides to ingest part of a costume, you could be spooked with a $1,872 vet bill to remove it.
• Keep any decorations out of your dog or cat’s reach, especially candles or jack o’ lanterns. Fire happens.
• Candy is not for your pet but there are some cute Halloween themed treats that you can give them. If your dog gets his paws on some chocolate, it could be BIG trouble. The average cost to treat food poisoning is $830.
• If you are expecting little ghouls and goblins to knock on your door, why not put your pet in the bedroom? They won’t escape or be frightened by a group of ghastly gremlins! Treating anxiety in pets can leave you howling at the moon to the tune of $394. The Bayou Boys will be taking Treatibles® on Halloween to help them stay calm.
*Costs based on PetPlan’s 2016 research
Here is a spooktacular graphic from our friends at PetPlan that show the horrifying cost of treating your pet if they get into mischief this Halloween.

  4. Very good advice! Mom doesn't like all the doorbell ringing. Last year we had class so we were not home. This year, we might leave too so we don't have to deal with it all.

  10. We mostly just put Halloween themed bandanas on the dogs. Luke doesn't mind wearing coats or shirts, so I almost got a costume for him this year, but just couldn't find what I wanted! :)

  17. The extent of 'dress up' around the Ranch is bandanas. But I LOVED your costumes. Great advice!
