How to Pet Proof Your House and Garden

Pets are great fun but they can also get up to mischief. This is at best annoying and at worst destructive or dangerous, to themselves or others. By pet proofing your home you’ll be protecting them, and yourself, from a variety of common mishaps and misadventures.

Parents with small children very quickly learn to identify potential risks around their home and take steps to deal with them.

Pet proofing your house

In the same way, as a pet owner, you should minimize the hazards your pet could encounter. Large drops from which they could fall, such as windows or balconies, should be screened. Small objects should not be left lying around as these could lead to choking if swallowed. Pets should never be left unsupervised near electric heaters or open fires.
