Halloween is one of the best holidays of the year for kids and adults alike. For our pets, however, it can be stressful. Whether you plan on taking the kids around the neighborhood or staying home and handing out candy, you need to consider how your dog will feel about all of the excitement. Here’s how to ensure your pup has a great night.
Tire them out
A tired dog is a good dog. With all of the excitement of Halloween, it’s easy to neglect daily dog walking. Don’t fall into this trap! Taking your dog on a long walk or giving them an hour of intense play will wear them out and most likely make them better-behaved. Halloween night is chaotic - don’t go into it with a dog full of pent-up energy.
October 14-20 is National Veterinary Technician Week and it's a great opportunity for all of us here at Schmitt's Animal Hospital to pause and appreciate our Licensed Veterinary Technicians! LVTs are an integral piece of keeping our animal hospital functioning and providing the best care possible for all of our patients. Our team of LVTs are some of the most compassionate, smart, and caring individuals and we are so lucky to have them! Thank you Sarah, Sara, Shelly, Kenzie, and Cali for all of your hard work everyday and everything you do for our patients and clients!
