Cobweb covered doorways, porches lined with glowing pumpkins and miniature visitors draped in white sheets can only mean one thing: Halloween is right around the corner. With the holiday rapidly approaching, it is time to start planning your favorite traditions. In addition to the pumpkin carving and costume parties, keeping your pets safe during this holiday is an importation tradition to uphold.
Whether they are your child’s faithful trick-or-treating companion, or the Toto to your Dorothy costume from the Wizard of Oz, pets can be an integral part of your Halloween celebrations. “It is more than OK to dress your pet up in a Halloween costume, as long as the costume fits them appropriately and isn’t too tight,” said Dr. Mark Stickney, Clinical Associate Professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.
“A good rule of thumb is to make sure that you can easily slip two fingers underneath whatever bands are in the costume and to not leave the costume on them when they are unsupervised.” Just keep in mind that while a costume may be cute and funny to you, your pet may disagree.
