Fourth of July Safety Tips
For many people, nothing beats lounging in the backyard on the Fourth of July with good friends and family—including the four-legged members of the household. While it may seem like a great idea to reward Rover with scraps from the grill and bring him along to watch fireworks, in reality some festive foods and products can be potentially hazardous to your pets. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center offers the following tips:
Never leave alcoholic drinks unattended where pets can reach them.
Alcoholic beverages have the potential to poison pets. If ingested, the
animal could become very intoxicated and weak, severely depressed or
could go into a coma. Death from respiratory failure is also a
possibility in severe cases.
