chocolate hidden from our pets. But did
you know that other common household items can be just as poisonous? Avocados, onions, and gum are just a few of
the foods that can pose a serious threat to your pet’s health.
- Human Foods – Chocolate, onions,
avocados, grapes, raisins, salt, garlic, macadamia nuts, coffee grounds, yeast
dough, fatty foods, tea, alcohol, and chewing gum are all dangerous to pets.
- Medications – Medications prescribed
for humans differ from those prescribed by veterinarians. If your pet is in pain, schedule a visit to
the vet. Giving them your medication or
medication prescribed for another dog can have adverse side effects.
- Toilet Bowl Water – The chemicals
used in toilet bowl cleaners can irritate your pet’s digestive tract.
- Plants – Certain plants like lilies,
sago palms, azaleas, and tulips can cause a range of health problems in pets. Be cautious about the plants you keep inside
of your house and in your yard this summer.
Ask us if you’re not sure!
- Chemical Lawn Treatments – The
chemicals that keep your lawn looking beautiful and green can be harmful to
your pet after they have been recently applied.
New chemicals can stick to your pet’s paws and they may attempt to lick
- Cooking Fumes – Don’t forget about
your feathered friends! Birds have
unique respiratory tracks and shouldn’t be exposed to cooking fumes, smoke,
aerosol products, or even air freshners.
While we love to share with our furry friends, we remind you to keep these hazardous household items out of reach. If your pet has ingested
something they shouldn’t have, contact Bregman
Vet Group. Our experienced veterinarians
can help your pet get the care they need.
