The spooks and goblins will be out soon.  Halloween is fun for children and adults, but we need to be aware it can be stressful and scary for pets.  Frequent knocking on the door and strange creatures in scary costumes may cause such fright your dog could bolt out the open door.  According to the North Shore Animal League, the two top hazards are escaping and being poisoned.  All the candy is enticing, but don't share with your dog.  Chocolate and even sugar free candy is toxic to pets.  Kitty may like the rustle of candy wrappers, but it could cause choking.  Keep lighted pumpkins outside and provide a safe, quiet room or area in your house for animals.  Practice safety and have a happy Halloween!
