Keeping Your Home Pet Safe – Top TipsInadvertent deaths and injuries may result from pets getting into poisonous substances.

Like little kids, pets require to be kept an eye on and, when left alone, their space needs to be free of toxins and hazardous substances. Here are a few tips for detoxing your pet’s space.


Dogs are prone to consuming all manner of food. Anything their owner is eating is quarry as far as they’re concerned. Only there are some common foods that may be harmful or even deadly to pets. Here are a few foods to keep out of your dog’s reach:

* Chocolate
* Grapes and raisins
* Soft drinks
* Coffee
* Walnuts
* Avocados


Cats are particularly prone to munching upon houseplants. They’ll also help themselves to your garden plants outside. Look on the internet for a all-inclusive listing of plants that are toxic to pets. Here is a partial list:

* Aloe
* English Ivy
* Morning Glory
* Yew
* Crocus
* Calla Lily

Supply cats with potted, sprouted greens such as wheat and rye grass so that they’ll be less enticed to consume houseplants. Keep your dog on a leash or in an enclosed yard, and scrutinize the yard prior to allowing your dog have the run of the fenced area.

Household Cleaners

Take care not to utilize toxic cleaners on your floors, whether carpet, vinyl, hardwood, or other flooring. Most abrasive, chemical floor cleaners had better either not be used or be applied only if the pet isn’t in the room, and the pet shouldn’t be permitted back into the room until the floor is dry.

Store cleaners, including shampoos, laundry soap, and dishwashing detergent well out of grasp of your pets.


Animals can consume some very revolting things when permitted to roam unrestrained through your neighborhood. Even your yard and immediate property can present hazards.

Cats and dogs will overtake and consume rodents, insects, and grass, all of which may contain poisons. Rodents may have ingested rat poison or possess worms. Insects may have been exposed to pesticides or your pet could be allergic to the insect’s bite or sting. Neighborhood grass may be sprayed with weed killer or different chemicals.

Small Animals

Small animals such as hamsters and mice require a secure space, as well. Don’t give your caged rodents cotton for bedding; they may ingest it, causing a blockage. Also, colored inks in newsprint and cardboard can be harmful (carcinogenic) to rodents, particularly pet mice. So make certain your caged rodent possesses safe chewing toys and nonpoisonous bedding.

Keep all pills, medicines, and supplements out of your pet’s grasp. If you leave a bottle of pain reliever on the counter with the lid loose, your cat may knock it off and it – and the dog – could consume the pills and even be killed.

Don’t use plug-in fragrances or perfumed candles in your pet’s space. They might smell too good and invite ingestion.

Just like humans, domesticated animals like dogs and cats are affected by the health hazards of modern living. Pollution, poor nutrition, stress and unhealthy lifestyles can lead to a variety of illnesses and conditions that are very similar to those experienced by humans.

In fact, many, if not most pet health concerns can be addressed by helping your pets to live a healthier lifestyle. While it has its place, conventional medicine for animals and ‘modern technology’ have failed our pets in many ways.

According to pet expert and author CJ Puotinen, most holistic veterinarians and animal health care professions list annual vaccinations and commercial pet foods as the major contributory cause in the rising rates of chronic illness in pets today. This has led many veterinarians to search for alternatives and to espouse more holistic methods of keeping our pets healthy.
