It’s tempting for pet owners in Columbus to share Halloween candy with their animal friends. Unfortunately, many types of Halloween candy are not safe for pets. Knowing which types of treats can be especially toxic can help you keep your pet safe at the holiday. While there is often overlap between what will poison cats and what will poison dogs, there can be some difference between the two. Familiarizing yourself with the appropriate list for your pet is important.
These foods (and others) can harm dogs that eat them. If your pet eats any one of these foods, contact your pet's veterinarian to decide whether or not your pet is in danger.
All of the above candies are poisonous to dogs and should be reported to the veterinarian if they are consumed. In addition, candy wrappers can cause your dog to choke or develop an intestinal blockage.
These treats can cause problems for cats ranging from temporary illness to death.
Cats can also be harmed by eating candy wrappers, and they can choke on small hard candies.
You can protect your dog or cat by keeping your Halloween candy in the freezer, teaching your children not to share Halloween candy with your pet, and by keeping your pet full and satisfied with healthy pet food on Halloween night. If you notice your pet getting ill on Halloween (vomiting, diarrhea, difficulty breathing, lethargy and other symptoms), contact your pet's Columbus vet right away.
As your pet's vet in Columbus, we're happy to help your pet stay healthy this Halloween! To find out more about how you can protect your pet, contact Hamilton Road Animal Hospital at 614-239-0027.
