and pets today? Keep these pet safety
tips in mind as you celebrate!
- Keep Gates Closed – Guests might not
be as careful about closing doors and gates.
It can be easy to overlook that your pet has gotten out. Keep an eye on your pet and make sure that
they are wearing a collar with ID or even a microchip.
- Avoid Food Dangers – Let your guests
know to not give your pet any food without permission. Keep an eye on the trash, too. Leftover fat from meat, strings from roasts,
left over bones and corn on the cob can be harmful for your pet. Even a mild upset stomach can cause vomiting
- Keep Purses Out of Reach – A guest’s
purse may contain prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, candies, or
even gum sweetened with xylitol. This
can be toxic to your pet.
- Keep Pets Cool – Labor Day can still
be a hot holiday. Don’t leave pets in
the car and watch for signs of overheating.
