Costumed Pets Who Are Ready for Halloween

We love Halloween. So, to help celebrate the spook-tacular holiday, we asked our readers and our Vetstreet team to share pictures of their costumed pets. The results were adorable — check out photos of a pirate, Batdog, Yoda and more in the gallery below.

If you're feeling inspired to dress up your own dog or cat, remember that not all pets are willing to wear a costume. If your cat or dog is agreeable, be sure to choose a costume that fits properly and is  the right type of outfit for your pet. Pets should only wear costumes under supervision, and if there's the potential for any discomfort — such as costumes that cover the ears — capture your photo, then remove the costume, so your pet can celebrate in comfort, too.

Don't worry when this little cowpoke rolls into your town. Lana may rope and wrangle anything that gets in her way, but her owner Alison Natali says you'll never meet a sweeter cowgirl who will snuggle up to sleep with you every night. Just don't take her place on the bed!

Naya, an American Pit Bull Terrier, is a little bucking bronco. She even won best in show at a Halloween event that raised both needed funds for a shelter and positive awareness for Pit Bulls.

Pit bulls dressed as dinosaurs

No need to travel back in time. These friendly herbivores, Mia, a triceratops, and Baby, a stegosaurus, are the most well-trained dinosaur-Pit Bulls around. Do you think the real dinosaurs would have rolled over for a treat?
