No matter how hard you try, you just can’t get rid of every pet toxin in your home. Fortunately, your pet will be safe with some simple precautions! Learn more here from a Montgomery, TX vet.

Toxic Foods

Every kitchen contains a few foods that pets shouldn’t have. The list includes onions, shallots, garlic, chives, avocado, grapes, raisins, chocolate, candy, gum, salt, certain types of nuts, caffeine, and alcoholic beverages. Never leave these items within reach of your pet; store them in cabinets or the refrigerator where they belong.

Human Medicines

Were you aware that everything from cough syrup and aspirin to antidepressants and prescription drugs can harm a pet if they ingest too much? Don’t let your pet gain access to your medicine cabinet. Also take care to separate your own medications from those of your pet.

Pest-Control Products

Do you use pesticides in your home to get rid of insect or rodent intruders? Do spray chemicals to ward off ants or bees? Use caution with these products, because they may be able to poison your house pet. Try placing pesticides in areas where pets can’t get to.
