The SPCA put out these great safety tips for our dogs during the Haloween season!
It might be tempting to give your dog a piece of your Halloween candy, but remember, this is notgood for them!
Milk and dairy products can cause diarrhea. It might be tempting to give your pet a taste of your ice cream or other dairy products, but it's better to avoid the temptation.
Macadamia nuts are extremely poisonous. Just a small quantity of macadamia nuts can cause symptoms ranging from vomiting and weakness to muscle tremors and paralysis.
Candy, gum, and baked goods are no-nos! Most candies, gum, toothpastes, baked goods, and diet foods are sweetened with xylitol. Xylitol will cause an increase in your pets insulin levels, causing a dramatic drop in their blood sugar. The effects can be fatal and occur within a short amount of time, beginning with seizures and resulting in death due to liver failure.
It's not a myth- chocolate is deadly! All types of chocolate, even white chocolate, include a chemical- theobromine -that is very toxic to dogs. It can cause diarreah, vomiting, excessive thirst, abnormal heart rhythms, seizures, and death.
