PetMeds® to Help Pet Parents Celebrate Fall With “Purr-fect Health and Wellness” Giveaway
With Halloween around the corner, many families are looking forward to enjoying trick-or-treat candy and other seasonal sweets. To help pet parents can safely include cats and dogs in fall festivities, PetMeds® is giving away prize packs every week in October.
For pet parents who love Halloween, it can be a fun day to spend with pets. Friendly, sociable pets can join their families to walk the neighborhood trick-or-treating route or hang out by the door to help greet costumed characters. But with candy bowls and trick-or-treat stashes all around, pet parents should be vigilant to ensure that pets do not sneak a taste.
Sugary sweets can be tempting for dogs because they can taste sweetness. Cats do not have taste receptors for sweetness but may still seek out novel textures. While small amounts of sugar are not normally harmful to pets, over time it can lead to dental disease, obesity, and diabetes.
Pet parents should also be aware of foods that are safe for humans, but toxic to pets. Xylitol, an artificial sweetener used in many sugar-free gummies, chocolates, and lollipops, is toxic to cats and dogs even in small amounts. Chocolate, especially dark varieties, can also cause toxicity. Raisins are a lesser-known toxin that can be found in many candies and baked goods around the holidays.
Pet treats are safe for cats and dogs, but they should be given in moderation, even on special occasions, Limit treats to no more than 10% of your pet’s daily caloric intake to keep their diet in balance and prevent an upset stomach on Halloween night.
Pet parents are invited to enter the “Purr-fect Health and Wellness” Giveaway for a chance to win a prize pack full of healthy treats and wellness items to celebrate Halloween with their cat or dog, by leaving a comment below.
