The Importance Of Pet Safety

Undoubtedly, many welcome pets as the new members of their family. Similarly, you may feel an attachment to your pet like any other loving relationship. Pet safety is of utmost importance when you plan to get a pet for yourself. Whether you wish to get a dog, cat, or anything else, the bonding experience is immeasurable.

Keep in mind that your pet is not a human-like you. You cannot expect the same intelligence or communication skills. Unlike us, they indeed lack social responsibilities and awareness. Here is where you play a vital role in providing a quality life to your adorable pet. 

  What is the role of Mirapets?

We know you have the whole year-round task of keeping your pets safe. Our quality products will make your life easier as a pet owner. We will continue to provide insight to help you better protect your pets. At times, we give deadly poisonous food or medications unknowingly.

 That's not all!

 Your pets may end up consuming anything when you least expect it. Furthermore, the weather can affect our innocent pets adversely. So, time for some action and act as the shield against the world's harshness. 

  Keep These Out Of Reach

For a better health of pets, keep your pets away from below mentioned factors and materials;

1. Potential Food Poisoning

Keep your furry pets away from consuming the following foods, whether by themselves or you provide it:

  • Chocolate, specifically dark chocolates for the dogs
  • Large quantities of garlic and onions
  • Raisins
  • Grapes
  • The unbaked dough of yeast bread
  • Caffeinated food or drinks
  • Xylitol
  • Alcohol

2. Dangerous Household Liquids

 Avoid any cleaning chemicals such as:

  • Household cleaners
  • Detergents
  • Glues
  • Bleach
  • Paints
  • Gardening fertilizers
  • Automotive fluids

 Even the slightest inhaling or contact with fur and skin, besides consumption, can cause harmful effects.

3. Harmful Domestic Items

 Name it any small piece like a rubber band or string or your electrical cords; all can prove harmful. Think, see and be vigilant. Any small item can appeal to your pet. For pet safety, ensure your dryers are not a cozy place for your cats to sit on or sleep in.

Why do we say this? Cats are attracted by warmth and driven by curiosity. Cats like to sit and sleep in tight enclosed spaces. With that being said, it is a must to shut the doors and power to any household appliances that are not in use.

 4. Medications

 Similar to your children, keep all the medications away from your pets for pet safety. Any of the below-mentioned medicines can be fatal or harmful for the pets:

  • Antidepressants
  • Sleeping pills
  • ADHD medications
  • Beta-blockers
  • Birth control pills
  • Cholesterol controlling drugs

5. Nicotine Poisoning

 Your pets, particularly the curious puppies, may feel interested in the discarded nicotine products like cigarette butts, cigarettes, nicotine gums, and patches, or any other chewing product. Pet safety is our priority, so discard them responsibly. 

6. Extreme temperatures

 We offer chilled treats, kiddie pools, and cooling beds for your pet's safety. Dogs cannot withstand temperatures higher than 90F. They don't sweat and just pant, so consider their age, health conditions, and breed. All of them will indicate your pet's safety and its requirements. 

 Pet's safety remains on high alert during winters because snow and ice can cause hypothermia in them. Similarly, take care of hydration levels during summers. Their sunken eyes, dry gums, more panting, and drooling may indicate dehydration. Yes, check by springing their skin slightly.
