Is our homes are safe for our Furry Kids? It might surprise you to know how many hazards are there in a typical home for the pets we love the most.
Everyone is mostly aware that anti-freeze, pest sprays, rat poison and other same poisonous products should be kept where no pet can get to them. And many of us have heard about plants that are poison to our pets such as mistletoe, lilies and poinsettias. But have you ever heard or considered the following things as potential dangers to your pet?
1. Electrical cords:
Pets chewing on electrical cords can receive a potentially fatal shock. This is especially prevalent around the holidays when extension cords are often used.
2. Ingesting harmful foods:
Chocolate can be fatal to pets.
3. Worn out toys:
Toys that are worn or badly chewed can begin to fall apart and small pieces of them can be swallowed by pet and it may be very dangerous for them.
Pets that get into the garbage can may eat bones, coffee grounds, spoiled food, cigarette butts, etc. and out of these garbage some elements may be poisonous to them.
Pets may ingest cleanser, soap, bleach, mothballs, paint, pool or other chemicals, fertilizers, etc. which are widely use or can be at our homes. These chemicals should be kept away from the rich of the pets.
Many medications intended for humans can be fatal to pets, for example nicotine gum. Such thing should be kept out of the rich of our pets.
7. Open clothes dryer doors:
The dryer is a wonderfully warm spot for a cat to take a nap…make sure they can’t get inside.
Other things may not be as obvious as those listed above. I once had heard that a kitten swallowed a needle and thread. The person who had first found him had noticed a lump on cat’s throat. When he got him to the vet, x-rays were taken and the item removed. The kitten and that person were both traumatized!
When you are using potentially dangerous tools like power saws, drills, etc., make sure your pet is confined to an area away from your work place. Is your ceiling fan running when your bird is flying free in the house? Always make sure to stop it when they are free in house.
Pets usually investigate things with their mouths, and there are many dangers in the average home. Take a look around your house and see just how safe it is for your Furry Kids. A quick check may save your pet from injury or death, and you from expensive vet bills!
