Halloween and Pets – The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly Stains
Some dogs enjoy dressing up, tagging along with kids for trick or treating, or handing out treats for the spooktacular event! However, others want absolutely NO part of it. That’s alright! We can certainly sympathize with them. That doesn’t mean they have to miss out on all the fun! We can help them celebrate with their very own homemade dog treats and they relish in it!
Our tasty Pumpkin and Peanut Butter dog treats are made especially for the pooches in our life; however, Halloween can sometimes not be so pet-friendly! Our lovable four-legged friends can sometimes be a bit sneaky and get into the kids treats. YIKES! That is NEVER a good thing! Besides being dangerous for them, it can cause upset tummies and vomiting. In addition, all the little ghost and goblins showing up at the door with strange loud voices are enough to frighten even the bravest of pups! Some dogs can even become so anxious that they have urine accidents or it sends their tummy into turmoil, followed by diarrhea! It can quickly turn into a not-so-fun night!
