Halloween is drawing ever closer, and with all that candy and chocolate stacking up, it's tempting to give your furry friends a small taste. Our advise: DON'T! Not unless you want Agatha Christie to write a new "Death by Chocolate" murder mystery for your lovable puppy.
If your puppy should get into trouble (they're always putting their noses where the shouldn't, the darn things), here is some information on what to do for your silly dog to save them from this deadly treat.
Stay safe this spooky season!
Pet Disaster Plan
With all the forest fires, hurricanes, and other natural disasters that happen here in the United States, it's important to have a pet disaster plan in place. We all love our pets, and we want to save them in times of trouble like we would any other family member, which is why it's best to be prepare. We've attached a veterinary approved disaster plan for our customers to use to help prepare their own pet disaster plan which is appropriate for state they live in.
