Home Repair Clinic - October Newsletter

(This picture never gets old!)

Wishbone wants to remind pet owners that there are some very important safety tips to keep in mind this time of year:

Halloween treats are everywhere during the month of October but if you have a pet in your home please take heed of Wishbone's Tips:

- Grapes and raisins can cause kidney damage and even kidney failure in dogs.

- Sugar-free candy (with xylitol) can lead to a drop in blood sugar, loss of coordination, and seizures in dogs.

- Bring your pets inside during Trick or Treet time, we don't want to believe it but pranksters have been known to tease pets viciously.

- If you insist on putting a costume on your pet please make sure they do not restrict movement, hearing, eyesight, or the ability to breathe.

- If you use a candle in your jack-o-lantern keep it safely away from pets who could knock it over.

"It doesn't hurt to have a very special safe treat for your pup on Halloween, in fact, do that, give your pup a special treat!."-Wishbone
