Responsible Pet Ownership Tips

Outdoor Health Hazards

Let’s not forget that your little buddy is a mischief master, and the outdoors are like a large playground to him or her. While you may be tempted to let your pets run wild in the garden, you should keep them from:

  • Poisonous plants
  • Containers carrying pesticides and insecticides
  • Poisonous reptiles

While your pet should enjoy its outdoor time, it’s important for you to be vigilant to protect him or her from danger.

For your cat’s safety, make sure it is kept indoors after dark.
