Precautions to take to protect your pets this Halloween. Nydia Han reports during Action News at 9 a.m. on October 29, 2017.

Halloween is just days away, and pet owners need to take precautions to protect their four-legged friends.

First, be sure to keep the delicacies of the holiday out of your pet's reach. Some treats, such as chocolate, can have a toxic effect on their system.

Remember, what people find fun can be stressful to a pet. So avoid using decorations that move or make noise.

Think twice before putting up human-like figures that can intimidate pets.

And if you're thinking about dressing up your pooch in a cute costume, make sure it is free of frills that can be chewed off and swallowed.
