Be Careful with Pet Halloween Costumes

Friday, October 20, 2017
posted by Jim Murphy

Many of us enjoy dressing up for Halloween and we even want to include our pets. Remember for some pets, wearing a costume can cause them stress. The ASPCA recommends that you don’t put your dog or cat in a costume unless you know that he doesn’t mind it.  According to the ASPCA, if you do dress up your pet for Halloween, make sure the costume does not limit his or her movement, sight or ability to breathe, bark or meow. Make sure that you check the costume for any dangling thread that your pet can chew and possible choke. Costumes that don’t fit properly can get twisted on external objects or your pet, leading to injury.

Make sure you try on the costume before the big day to ensure that it fits properly. If you see your pet distressed in any way, scrub the costume idea. It is better that your pet is safe, happy and comfortable. In the real scheme of things, it’s really not that important!
