Danger Spots for Pets at Home

Just about every home, no matter how adept you are about pet safety, contains a few hazards. The trick is keeping your pet safe through simple precautions! Your Greensboro, NC vet tells you more below:

The Kitchen

Any kitchen contains a few foods that aren’t safe for pets—the list includes onions, garlic, shallots, chives, grapes, raisins, chocolate, candy, gum, caffeine, alcohol, avocado, fatty foods, salty items, and much more. Plus, there are knives, graters, forks, and other sharp objects that could cut a pet. It’s best to keep Fido or Fluffy out of the kitchen when preparing a meal.

Supply Closets

Bleach, furniture polish, carpet cleaner, air fresheners, standard household disinfectants… the list of potentially hazardous cleaning solutions goes on and on. Don’t let your pet come in contact with any cleaning supplies, and move your pet elsewhere if you’re using something that gives off strong fumes.

The Medicine Cabinet

Did you know that many human medications, from aspirin and antidepressants to prescription pills and cough syrup, can harm a pet who ingests too much? Keep pets away from medicine at all costs!
