If you haven’t heard, we’re having a costume contest this month and giving a prize to the best dressed. The cat or dog with the best costume will receive a $50 gift certificate to Phoenix Vet Center. It’s easy to enter, all you have to do is snap a picture, post it on Facebook or Instagram and tag us in it. If you don’t do social media, feel free to stop in and we can take your pet’s photo and they can also trick or treat! We’re excited to help you find the perfect costume for your cat or dog!
When dressing up your dog or cat, no matter the time of year, you want to make sure they’re comfortable with the costume. If there’s too much going on (arms or antenna) this could scare your pup and cause them to associate the costume with negative feelings. Also, if there are items protruding from the costume, make sure they can’t come loose and cause choking hazards. If your dog has sensitive skin, try to find fabric that is loose fitting and that doesn’t irritate their skin.
You can get as creative as you want or keep it simple for your pet. Here are some great options:
Cats can either love to be dressed up, or they’ll hate it. If your cat loves Halloween as much as you, it’s best to keep it simple.
Have fun with your costume this year by adding your pup into the mix. There are lots of costumes that require a side kick, perfect for your dog to play the part.
Talk about a throwback! Bring the 90’s to Halloween 2016 with a Beanie Baby and a Chia Pet. These costumes are easy to make and simple enough that they won’t bother the pet that wears them.
We’re loving all the submissions we’ve seen so far, and we can’t wait to see what else you do! If you have any questions, you can reach us at 602-559-5500. From all of us at PVC, have a safe and happy Halloween!
