Your pets are an essential part of your family and the dynamics of your home. At 925 Partners, serving Jacksonville, FL, and the surrounding areas, we know how important it is to you to keep your pets safe, especially when they are in the house or home alone. Let’s look at ways to help keep your pets safe at home.
Keep Toxic Materials Out of Reach
If you are a pet owner, you are responsible for staying aware of what items are toxic to your pets. Many items are obviously unsafe, such as chemicals and cleaners. But did you know many items are perfectly safe for people but are very toxic to animals? For instance, chocolate is toxic to dogs and cats. Your pets should be kept away from many seemingly innocent foods and other materials. Talk with your vet to get a full list of what your pet should be kept away from.
Make Your Home Pet Friendly
It is also essential that you make an effort to make your home pet friendly if your pets will stay inside. This means that they should not be confined in spaces that would make them anxious or in places that would put them in danger. Depending on the season, they also need spaces that are not too hot or cold.
Protect Aggressive Pets
This might seem a bit backward because most people think others should be protected from aggressive pets. Still, if you have a pet that struggles with aggression toward other animals or people, keeping that animal in a safe space where it cannot hurt others is your responsibility.
