Houston Mortgage Texas - Pet Safety Indoors


Most of us believe the safest place for our pet
is inside of our homes. As long as they remain
indoors, they are protected from the angry,
drooling jaws of predators. Pampered, indoor
house pets have struck the jackpot in the animal
kingdom. As we leave for work each morning,
we have peace of mind knowing that the most
difficult decision our pet will have to make
whether to sleep in beam of sunlight coming
through the living room window or on the soft,
cozy carpet in the bedroom.

While it seems as though our pets are living the
dream life, what we fail to realize is that there
are a wide array of unexpected dangers lurking around every corner of our home. Mundane objects such as
dental floss and dishrags are often overlooked by humans because they do not pose a serious threat to our
well-being. Our team of Houston mortgage experts knows that a healthy pet is a happy pet and have pro-
vided a list of steps you can take to help make your home the safe haven your pet deserves.


•	     When	selecting	toys	and	treats,	keep	in	mind	that	bones,	rawhide	chews,	rubber	bands,	and	toys	with		
       small parts all pose choking hazards. Toys that contain parts that are large in comparison to your
       pet’s mouth, such as a tennis ball, will not be as easy to swallow.

•	     Pets	like	to	get	into	everything.	Be	sure	to	supervise	your	pet	when	they	are	playing	with	string,		 	
       yarn or curtain cords. These items can wrap around their neck or be swallowed.

•	     Dishrags,	which	often	times	are	saturated	with	tasty	smells	or	bits	of	food	particles,		                                                    	              	
       attract pets. Therefore, keep the dishrags well out of their reach. If your pet accidently
       rips off a piece and eats it, the object could cause intestinal blockage.

                                                                                                                                                    {1}

•	   Obviously,	keep	all	medications	stored	safely	away	from	pets.

•	   Just	as	common	household	items	can	be	dangerous	to	children,	they	can	also	be	extremely	hazard-	 	
     ous to your pet. Make sure to keep all cleaners, batteries, fabric softener sheets, insecticides or any
     other poisonous objects away from your pet.

•	   Avoid	burning	incense	or	spraying	insecticides	if	you	have	fish.	These	items	can	leave	a	deadly	film		
     on the fish tank’s surface.

•	   If	you	have	birds,	avoid	using	pump	or	aerosol	sprays.	Also,	the	fumes	from	self-cleaning	ovens	and		
     nonstick cooking surfaces can be lethal to them.

•	   Make	sure	you	never	use	any	dog-specific	product,	especially	flea	treatments	on	cats.	Some	of	these		
     common dog products contain ingredients poisonous to felines.

•	   Either	place	a	lid	on	your	trashcan	or	keep	it	out	of	your	pet’s	reach.	This	ensures	they	will	not		                                                       	
     knock it over and consume health-risk discards.

•	   Never	allow	your	pet	to	chew	on	electrical	cords.

•	   When	Christmas	time	rolls	around,	be	extra	cautious.	Pine	needles	are	toxic	to	animals;	therefore,		 	
     your cat just drinking the water from the Christmas tree base could cause serious illness. Also, keep
     your animals away from tinsel and avoid glass ornaments that can break easily.

•	   Post	a	firefighter’s	alert	decal	on	your	windows	and	doors	to	let	rescuers	know	that	in	the	instance			
     of a disaster, there are pets inside.
