If you’re like most people, your pets are a genuine part of your family So it’s no surprise that you would want to keep them safe every day. Unfortunately, there are some things around your home that could put your pet in danger. When it comes to keeping your pets safe in your home, these are a few steps you should take.
Hide Electronic Cords
Electrical cords can seem like toys to your pets, no matter how old they are. Rather than having chords lying along you’re living room floor, secure them in a PVC or block off the areas where a lot of cords are present, so your pet can’t get at them.
Invest in Doggy Gates
Same way you use baby gates for your children, invest in doggie gates to keep your pet out of certain areas of your home. If they scurry into the kitchen while you’re not around, they can easily knock over things that could hurt them, so it’s best to keep them out of the room entirely.
Don’t Turn off Your AC
Some homeowners will program their HVAC system to cycle off during the day when no one is home, but if you have a pet who’s still in the house, that’s not a good idea. You should leave your HVAC system running so they can stay comfortable throughout the day.
Keep Toilet Lids Down & Secured
Not only is it not wise to let Fido drink from the toilet bowl, but if smaller pets get curious about the opening, they could potentially fall in and hurt themselves, or worse. Secure your toilet lid with a child (and pet) safety lock.
