Pets and holidays can be very fun especially Halloween. I love dressing up my basset hounds, and taking them along trick or treating. I am fortunate that my dogs love people and are almost overly friendly. To my surprise,
there are thousands of costume ideas out there, whether it is on the web
or at your local store. Some of my favorites are the homemade ones on
the internet. I love the dachshund with the felt costume that looks like a hotdog bun. What is your favorite pet costume?
For those of you pet owners that are not as lucky, Halloween can be a stressful holiday for you and your animal. Here at Valley Vet Supply we have several products to help your pet relax and enjoy the holiday.
One way to help your pet be more relaxed while strangers come to the door dressed in crazy outfits and masks is Rescue Remedy. This is a very simple and effective way to help calm almost any animal. Rescue Remedy is very simple to administer, you just apply the drops to a treat or to their water. This is a great product to help relieve unneeded stress on your animal.
Pet Ease Soft Chew are another great product that I have used with a cat that had anxiety issues when company was over. They are smoke flavored treats for dogs or cats that are just the right blend of chamomile, hops, and ginger. Most pets find these “treats” very palatable.
If your pets are as anxious as mine are to be out and about with the kiddos for Halloween, then safety should be your main goal. To keep your outing safe for both kids and pet, Valley Vet Supply has several products available to help ensure the safety of your pet while out at night. There is a bright orange or yellow reflective parka that will not only reflect the lights of an oncoming car but will keep your pooch warm. We also carry reflective leg bracelets which can be used on a horse for night time riding.
Wishing everyone a safe Halloween, Rachael
