Our pets are always getting into bad things. It is of utmost importance that you pet-proof your house and outside surroundings. If you say to yourself, "Oh, I don't think he/she'll get into that," take my advice, Move It!! Keep all human meds and dog meds in cabinets your pets cannot access. Put baby proof locks or straps on whatever you need to-I have, and it kept my seizure boy out of the refrigerator, trash, oven and cabinets. At the least your pet may get some GI upset; at the worst your pet may die. As Ben Franklin said, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Hopefully these articles will help you keep your pet out of trouble.

There's a reason Thorogood sang "Bad to the Bone." I know many people give dogs real bones, but they can be deadly. Please read the articles, written by veterinarians, and don't give your dog a bone again. Don't Give Your Dog a Bone #1 and FDA Issues Warnings about Dog Bones I have seen several dogs die due to ham bone ingestion, another dog with a shank bone stuck in the jaw for weeks, many dogs with upper 4th premolar fractures and operated on two dogs with rawhide obstructing the GI tract. That's right, NO REGULAR RAWHIDE either. It is listed as a hazard by the ASPCA as well.
