What to consider when purchasing accessories for your dog or cat

Supervision :​ Always supervise your pets when they are wearing accessories, and while they are playing with toys. If at any time your pet seems distressed by a harness, collar, bandanna, or T-shirt that they are wearing, remove it immediately.

Fit:​ When purchasing anything for your pet to wear, such as collars, harnesses, or bandannas, make sure they are sized appropriately. If you're ordering an item online, jot down your dog or cat's measurements and use the size chart (when available) to figure out what will work best for your pet. Your pet should be able to move comfortably in their "Stranger Things"-themed apparel. An item of clothing that's too small could be constricting, while one that's too big could be a tripping hazard.

Appropriate Size:​ When selecting toys for your dog or cat, pick appropriately sized toys. Toys that are too small can be a choking hazard for pets and should be avoided. Similarly, for dogs that are heavy chewers, you'll want to pay special attention to make sure that they don't chew off small pieces of a toy that could be ingested.
