No Candy For Your Dog

halloween candy dogsHalloween was amazing!! So many costumes. So many kids. So much candy. Now that you have all this candy what do you do with it? Often, unless we are 10 years old and have an insatiable hunger for candy, we cannot eat all the candy that we have in our trick-or-treat candy bucket. When you are trying to figure out what to do with your candy, do not give it to your pets.

Tootsie Rolls and caramel apples are off the list, of course, but here are some acceptable goodies that can keep him happy even though they won’t be in any kid’s Halloween bag!

Your dog and cat cannot eat any of your Halloween candy. There is not a single piece of it that won’t potentially make them sick or even risk death.  But that doesn’t mean that they have to be left out of the fun. You can give your pets the healthy treats.
Carrots, cooked sweet potato, green beans and even lettuce are super yummy and your dogs love them. It might be health food for you but for fido is a great treat to eat. Strawberries, melons, blueberries, bananas, apples and pears (without seeds) are also super yummy. If you are feeling ambitious you could make them a special treat that will be better than any candy and will be healthy too.
If you notice your pet vomiting, having diarrhea, lethargic, or loss of appetite please call your vet immediately as he might have eaten something he shouldn’t have.
