Our family pets rely on us to make sure they’re safe at all times. Whether that means protecting them during summer, winter, plants, poisons or when a door or gate is accidentally left open, there are a few simple steps you can take ahead of time to be prepared. Pets become unwell due to eating something toxic or otherwise dangerous. Often this could have been avoided but the owners were unaware of the potential dangers. While this is not an exhaustive list, it gives some of the more common dangers that we see.
As pet parents, it’s important that we keep our pets safe but unfortunately hazards can present in unusual situations. We’ve listed some common indoor hazards for you to keep an eye out for.
Even with the best planning and intentions our pets will occasionally be exposed to toxic substances. If you suspect your pet has been exposed to something harmful call your veterinarian immediately as time is of the essence. It is not always safe to induce vomiting or administer other home remedies. Seek counsel before taking action.
