Howl’oween is the biggest event on the pet calendar. Make sure if you are taking your pet trick or treating, that he is comfortable wearing his costume out and about. When you are trick or treating in the neighborhood, never put children in charge  of the dog as they are too distracted by the event. Be sure to have special dog treats for your pet and also for doggie trick or treaters coming to your door. Chocolate is toxic to pets and they don’t need the sugar rush from candy!

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.
