Five Quick Ways to Keep Your Pets Safe

1.  Keep all electric cords out of reach or covered by a chew-proof guard. Puppies and kittens will chew on anything.

2.  Don't leave any medicines on tables, chairs, or in open cabinets.

3.  Cover your outside pool or pond. Many heavily-coated dogs and cats may be unable to swim to safety when their coats are soaking wet.

4.  Keep pets away from ice-covered ponds and lakes. Cats and dogs may wander onto ice too thin to support their weight.

5.  Keep all painting supplies in closed cabinets.
