Always be prepared for an emergency
Being prepared in an emergency can help save your pet’s life. That’s why you need to make sure to always keep them on a leash when you’re outside. If you’re outside after dark use a reflective leash and take a flashlight. Moreover, take a minute to re-evaluate how “pet-proof” is your home. Remove toxic chemicals and plants from areas pets can reach. If they can’t get to them, they can’t ingest them.
Also, never leave them unattended for extended periods of time. Even the most relaxed pet can get into mischief if they are bored. Hire a pet sitter when you’re going out of town or on an extra-long day trip. We’d love to set you up with one of our awesome Wet Noses Pet Sitters to help ensure that your pet is safe. Just give us a call any time you need it!
