Six things to do to make sure your home is pet-friendly and safe

Source: RDC News

When a new arrival is due in a home, arrangements should be made to allow for comfort and easy transition. Be it a newborn baby, a friend, a relative or even a pet, a house should be arranged to accommodate the addition to the home. Animal lovers and pet owners have given the following room-by-room guidelines to make your home safe and friendly for pets.

  1. Install a fireguard around the fireplace to avoid sparks hitting the pet.
  2. Hide all the electrical wires and cover all electrical sockets to prevent electrocution of the pet through licking and chewing.
  3. Cover garbage. Garbage will occasionally contain treats for a hungry pet. The treats might be poisonous so opt to either take out your trash daily or use garbage bins with lids to keep your pets out.
  4. The kitchen holds many hazards for your pet. Cupboards often contain soaps, cleansers, and disinfectants that could cause bodily harm to your pet. Keep edible things on middle and top shelves. Install childproof locks to keep your pet out of cupboards, and perhaps install a gate to the kitchen.
  5. Your pet might ingest earrings, ties, clips and other small items that will cause choking and even death in the bathroom or bedroom. Pick up after yourself to avoid emergency trips to the veterinary.
  6. Some house plants are poisonous to animals. Make sure you do not have poisonous plants anywhere in the home.

Every room in your home can hold a potential threat to the life of your pets. Be vigilant as a pet owner to provide the best living conditions for your pet. Search the internet for more ways to make your home more friendly and safe for pets.
