Thanks to innovative technology in place today, it is easier than ever before to keep up with the people you love and to keep them safe. However, have you given much thought about the security or safety of your pets as the weather turns warm?
While the unpredictability of animal minds requires patience, love, and sometimes a bit of creativity to keep them happy and healthy, with the right knowledge and tools you can watch over your pets – even when you have to be away.
Avoid Dangerous Foods
If you have a pet, you likely know there are certain things your pets should not have access to, such as antifreeze and chocolate. However, there are many lesser-known toxins that can be very dangerous. You may unknowingly have some around your house. For example, lilies, which are common around spring can be toxic to cats. Also, the artificial sweetener xylitol (which is popular with keto diets) is potentially dangerous to dogs.
Make sure you know what may be around your home that could harm your pet and eliminate it or move it so the animal can’t access it.
Take Your Security Cameras a Step Further
Eliminating potentially poisonous substances is just part of the solution. There are other items around your home that may hurt your pets, too. While you can’t get rid of everything in your house, you can take steps to keep tabs on what your pet is doing while you are away.
Having security cameras is a great method to ensure you home is safe and secure, but they are also beneficial if you have a pet. You can use them to check in on your pets while you are away from home. You can even find tech options that allow you to talk to and feed your pet a treat remotely while you are away. These innovative devices provide you with peace of mind that your pet is safe, secure, and happy while you are away.
