Back to school: wise additions to equip your car for the school run
With the kids shortly returning to school you may already be doing your back-to-school...
This week (March 18th-24th 2019) is Poison Prevention Week, which is a week that is meant to raise awareness of the risk of being poisoned by household products that hide in plain sight including medicines, peroxides, chemicals, plants, food, fumes, and pesticides.
Most of the week’s events are based around protecting small children from getting into something that could harm them. Here at Travall, we want to draw special attention to our furry, four-legged children – because they need protecting too!
If you’ve got a dog that is notorious for sticking their nose where it shouldn’t be, they are risking getting into something that could really harm them one day. Thousands of pets swallow toxic products every year resulting in poisoning or chocking. Thanks to PetSmart, we were able to gather the following list to draw attention to dangerous items that could be lying around the house that your dog could get into.
If you’re a dog, or other pet, gets a hold of any of these, keep a close eye on them and call your vet or an Animal Poison Control Center immediately.
Over the counter meds
Chemicals and objects
If your dog consumes any of these items, or you think your dog may have eaten them, call your vet immediately. Storing these items in places that dogs can not get into can also help prevent consumption, or even locking them in a cabinet. Whatever you must do, try your very best to keep your dog safe and save yourself lots of money on vet bills!
