According to the American Kennel Club, Halloween is the second most common holiday for pets to get lost.

Not only that, it's also the busiest time of year for the Pet Poison Helpline - with emergency calls increasing by 12%.

Animal care experts say there are some things you can do to help your pets.

First, it’s important to remember that all the Halloween hype can cause pets to stress.

When you open your door to great trick-or-treaters, your dog may see that as an opportunity to run out the front door so make sure you’re extra careful.

Also, pets can get nervous or spooked very easily by the decorations so it’s best they steer clear of any of those outside or inside the home.
