TROUBLE AREAS
60. Balconies - Tall balconies without safety railings, or railings spaced too far apart, can lead to a dangerous fall.
61. Bath tubs or sinks - Small pets can drown in full bathtubs or sinks.
62. Doors and windows - Dogs and cats can run away if they fi nd an open door or window. They can also get seriously injured if they run across a busy road. Windows should have screens to prevent cats or other pets from falling out.
63. Electrical cords - Your pets can be electrocuted if they bite or chew on electrical cords that are plugged in.
64. Fireplace - Your pets can be burned by the fl ames or get sick if they eat the
ashes.
65. Toilets - Toilet water is not healthy for pets to drink; always remember to close the lid. Make sure you leave plenty of clean, fresh water for your pets if you must leave them home alone.
66. Washer and Dryer - Your pets can crawl into a washer or dryer without your
knowledge; close the doors to these appliances when you’re not using them.
OUTSIDE
67. Algae* - Can be found in ponds or other bodies of water; certain forms can be toxic.
68. Antifreeze/Coolant* - Some types of antifreeze or coolant products contain
ethylene glycol, which is highly toxic to dogs and cats, even in small amounts.
69. Fire pit/Grill - Flames can result in serious burns and ashes can cause illness if ingested.
70. Fences or gates - Your pets can run away if they fi nd openings in damaged
fences or gates. They can also get hurt or strangled if they get stuck.
71. Deck lattice - Your dogs or cats can get stuck in the openings under your deck and possibly be strangled.
72. De-icing salts - Some formulations may contain chemicals that are hazardous
to pets if ingested in large amounts. Look for “pet-friendly” de-icing salts.
73. Compost (particularly if moldy)
74. Gasoline*
75. Oil*
76. Pesticides*
77. Cocoa bean shell mulch fertilizer*
78. Swimming pools and hot tubs - Never leave your pet unattended near uncovered pools, even if they can swim.
*All contain harmful chemicals.
HOLIDAY HAZARDS
79. Alcohol
80. Flowers and Candy
81. Fake Easter Grass
82. Small toys and other plastic items
83. Fireworks
84. Repeatedly opening doors to greet trick-or-treaters can increase the chances
of your pets running out. Keep an eye on their whereabouts at all times. If feasible, keep cats in a secure area or closed room when opening doors.
85. Candles - Pets are naturally curious, and may be attracted to the bright lights of the flame in dark areas. Dogs and cats could either burn themselves by the flame or knock the candle over, starting a fire.
86. Xylitol - Candy or gum sweetened with xylitol is toxic and should be kept away from your pet.
87. All forms of chocolate can be harmful to your pet, potentially resulting in poisoning or even pancreatic inflammation from the high fat content.
88. Bones - Turkey, chicken, and other small animal bones are very different from the large bones you fi nd at the pet store. These small bones splinter easily and can cause serious internal damage if swallowed, so NEVER give them to your pet.
89. Hot containers - Your dog or cat will most likely become curious when they
smell something cooking. Keep an eye on hot containers so that your pet does not tip them over and get burned.
90. Holiday plants - Christmas rose, Holly, Lilies and Mistletoe are all toxic to dogs and cats.
91. Ribbons - It may look adorable, but placing a ribbon around your pet’s neck may cause them to choke.
92. Bubbling lights - Older forms of this attractive decoration may contain methylene chloride, which is a highly toxic chemical.
93. Fire salts - Contain chemicals that could be harmful to pets.
94. Angel hair (spun glass) - Can be irritating to eyes and skin, and could cause
intestinal obstruction if eaten in large amounts.
95. Christmas tree water - Stagnant tree water or water containing preservatives could result in stomach upset if ingested.
96. Decoration hooks - Can cause blockage and/or trauma to gastrointestinal tract if swallowed.
97. Styrofoam - Can cause your pets to choke if swallowed.
98. Ornaments - These can look like toys to cats and dogs, but they can cause serious injury, especially if your pets break or swallow them.
99. Tinsel - Can cause choking or internal trauma if swallowed.
100. Balloons and Confetti - These fun New Year’s party decorations can cause your pets to choke or obstruct their intestines if ingested. Keep an eye on your pets when they’re around these items or move them to an area that is not decorated.
101. Loud noises - New Year’s is typically a noisy holiday. Unfortunately, loud noises frighten pets and can cause them to run off. Keep your pets in a separate room, away from noisemakers, music, and other loud sounds that may startle them.
