Welcome back to our series on safety tips for your Furry Friends, in and around your home. We all know that dangers lurk from the great outdoors to your kitchen and everywhere in between!
Are YOU one of the 84.9 million households in the United States who cohabitates with a Furry Friend? I am also one of the 67% of ALL households who do! I’m sure you’re not surprised to hear that pet-parent’s spending exceeds $72 billion, according to the 2019-2020 American Pet Product’s Association (APPA) National Pet Owners Survey.
Some of the safety rules are simply “Good Old Common Sense”, like keeping small objects and items that can easily be eaten or swallowed out of their way. As for other dangers, just look around from your pet’s point of view and see what objects might be tempting and troublesome. Just like you would baby-proof a home, the same is true for pet-proofing.
We all want to keep those emergency trips to the Vet at a minimum!

WHAT TO DO IF YOUR PET IS POISONED?
Don’t wait! Call your Vet or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at 888-426-4435. Time is critical for successfully treating accidental poisoning. Be prepared to state your dog or cat’s breed, age, weight and any symptoms. Have the product container or plant sample nearby to assist with identification so the appropriate treatment recommendations can be made.
