It’s 15 days to Howl’oween. Be sure to purchase a costume for your pet well before and let them try it on so its familiar. Don’t fight your dog if he doesn’t want to wear an outfit. For some pooches it can be stressful. Outfits for cats are really just for a magic Kodak moment and then should be removed.

Mani-pedis are really important for both dogs and cats. If left unattended, nails can grow into the skin. Not only is this painful but it also makes walking extremely difficult. If you struggle to trim nails, both a groomer or the vet’s office can help. Some adoption agencies offer free nail trims for life. So be sure to ask when you adopt.

A nice cat scratching post will also help keep nails in good shape.
