With all of the “Clown” pranks we are hearing of, please don’t trust for one minute, that leaving your pets in your backyard is safe.Trick-or-treat candies are not for pets: Chocolate is poisonous to a lot of animals, I’m sure this isn’t the first time you’ve heard this.

Puppies and Kittens


The following are some suggestions to keeping puppies and kittens well:

· Make sure your puppy or kitten receives all their booster vaccines from 6-8 weeks old until 4-5 months old.
