Pets form an integral part of the animal lover’s home and are often regarded as family. Sometimes, pets find it hard to cope in the environment. With all known hazards out of the way, pet owners are often at a loss as to what could cause the irritation in their pet’s lives. This leaves a few unknown culprits lurking about.
Pet owners are encouraged to venture into the kitchen and clear out a few items. For bird lovers, the thought that non-stick cookware might be a hazard to the feathery family members might come as a surprise. Another unsuspecting fiend is a dirty HVAC unit. Both pet owners and their pets need clean air to thrive. Fur and dander are two of the biggest culprits, and regular servicing of the HVAC unit will keep the air clear.
A few potted plants around the house contribute to the overall ambiance of the property but can also keep a nasty secret. Lilies and English ivy are two of the plants that can cause a significant amount of discomfort to pets. Chocolate lovers who happen to have pets should know that the treat can be deadly to their pets. This extends to the garden as well, and cocoa mulch should be avoided.
It’s easy to make a house a home for a furry or feathery friend once pet owners have the right information. All it takes is a bit of care and some research to avoid hazardous pitfalls in and around the home.
