As Halloween is now upon us, we have been amazed to see a rash of images on social media sites as well as in tabloids of pets not just dressed for Halloween, but fur dyed/painted.

While many people may find it entertaining to dress and even dye their pets for a round of trick-or-treat, we would like to heed a word of warning so that you and your pets can enjoy a safe, spooky, scary night (but not the kind of scary that involves an emergency visit to the vet).

Please have a read of the article attached below that outlines potential risks to your pet’s health, and if you do decide to dress your pet for Halloween, please read the safety tips carefully to ensure you don’t put your pet in distress.
