Our households are thought to be safe places for us and our pets, but are we creating an unsafe environment without realising? One major issue we have is all to do with our cleaning products. Below are products to avoid and be cautious about around your pets.
Household products: Human medicines
Household cleaners (e.g., bleach, detergent)
Heavy metals (e.g., lead paint chips, linoleum)
Veterinary medicines that are given incorrectly (e.g., wrong medicine, wrong amount)
Chemicals (e.g., antifreeze, pool/spa chemicals) Foods: If you thought household products were bad, food is one to watch as well. Below is a list of foods to avoid giving to your pet as they're highly toxic and poisonous.
Grapes and raisins
Onions, garlic, and chives
Yeast dough Coffee and Alcohol
