Ryan Croman | Household hazards: How To Keep Your Dog Safe
HOW TO KEEP
Dogs are curious by nature and they
like to explore. Even though homes
are sanctuaries, it’s important to
safety-proof your house or
apartment from hazards that are
harmful or deadly to your dog or
any other pet.
Here are some ways to keep your
pets safe from household hazards in
1. AVOID TOXIC
It’s obvious that dogs and humans are different
biologically. Talk to you vet and make sure you
have access to a list of substances from the Pet
Poison Helpline and articles on seasonal foods
that are toxic so you can keep them away from
your pup! Below is a list of foods or products to
keep away from your pet:
Rodent Poisons (and other pest control
Vitamins and Minerals (Vitamin D3 and
NSAIDs (Naproxen, Ibuprofen)
Cold and Allergy Medications
2. CHECK EVERY
Before your pet enters the
room, every room needs to be
checked for hazardous
products. The Pet Poison
Helpline also offers a helpful
infographic that shows general
hazards in each room.
Complete a thorough check of
each room for items on the list.
Replace poisonous items with
green dog products.
3. EDUCATE YOUR
Make sure other family
members know which products
are harmful to animals. Offer
information or provide a
demonstration of which
household products should be
thrown away or kept away
from your dog’s reach. The
more your family and others
know about how to keep your
dog safer in the home can help
everyone feel more at ease.
4. RECOGNIZE DOG
The first step to identifying a sick dog
is to research and understand
poisoning symptoms. A lack of
appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, and
lethargy are common symptoms of
poisoning in dogs and other animals.
The sooner you understand these
symptoms, the sooner you can get a
prognosis and cure for your pet.
5. TIME IS
If there is a pet poisoning
emergency, time is crucial. Make
sure you have a health kit or easy
access to a vet if needed. Keep an
eye of your dog and be aware of
how they’re feeling throughout the
day. Understanding your pet’s
needs not only helps you avoid
future problems, but it also can help
notify you to any worrisome
symptoms if you suspect your pet
has an illness!
