Keep Your Pets Safe!

To keep our pets safe and healthy in our homes we provide food, shelter, and love.  But there are many household hazards that could potentially harm our lovable friends.

Here is a list of a few common household items that all pet owners should be aware of in order to avoid any medical emergencies.  Just because they like it doesn't mean it's good for them. Be sure to store all medicines and chemical or poisonous products where your pets can't get to them.

If you think your pet has been exposed to a poisonous substance, you can call your local veterinarian or the ASPCA Poison Control Center at 1-888-426-4435 (a consult fee may apply).
