How to keep your pet safe.

Did you know?


Dangerous Foods


The following can be toxic to pets: chocolate, raisins, grapes, some nuts like macadamia, garlic, onion, alcohol, coffee and other caffein drinks, bread dough, and  candy and gum containing artificial sweeteners




New Treats and Toys


Did you know?

Even a pet-safe treat can cause stomach upset if it is new to your pet. Offer only one of these at a time (ideally, separated by a few days). If your pet becomes ill after eating a holiday treat, it will be easier to trace the source and discontinue it. Also, check new toys for sharp edges, pieces that can be chewed off, or other potential hazards.




Did you know?

Hazardous plants include some evergreens (some types of pine), and holly bushes and berries. Try to keep these plants away from pets, or at least supervise pets when dangerous plants are nearby.


Fire and Carbon Monoxide


Did you know?

Fireplaces, wood-burning stoves, candles, and portable heaters are a danger to your pets. Of course you did.

Also, don't forget to check smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors to make sure they are functioning properly. Furnaces, and idling cars (in a garage) can increase the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in pets and humans.

I have heard about chocolate and dogs. I had a dog that actually ate a whole bag of kisses chocolate one time and thank god nothing happen to him. Either way, better be safe then sorry.

I keep my pets very safe, they are visited at someone else's house. I love animals but they don't agree with my wife, though she says she would like a toy poodle. My choice would be a Doberman.

Hi Margaret,

 Lots of good tips here for us pet lovers. I rarely give my dogs anything except IAMS. Sometimes I give them some vegatables or steak or chicken but usually no snacks. It keeps them healthy and a good weight.

Very good tips.  It burns me when I see people letting their pets drink their coffee etc.. It will only cause their pets pain later on in their life.
