Halloween Time! Part 3: Treat Your Pets!

October 20, 2014

Oh Fall. The leaves are changing colors, the cold is finally pushing out the hot summer sun and everyone seems to be getting excited for all the upcoming festivities.  What better holiday to kick off this great time of  year than Halloween! Kids, adults AND pets all dressed up and ready to go! Children heading out to go trick-or-treating, trying to get as much candy as they can to rot their teeth and give the local dentists something to do. People running off to parties or just dressing up to stay home and welcome guests. Everyone seems to be in the spirit! Unfortunately, our poor pets can’t enjoy the candy aspect of this holiday like we can! We all know chocolate is a big “no no” for our four legged loved ones and any kind of candy is just no good for them.  Luckily, there are many candy and chocolate alternatives you can give your pet for this holiday so they don’t feel left out.  Come on, you know you adore them, why not spoil them just a tad bit more? Here are some great treats and snacks you can give to your best friend to put a big smile on their face!
