Keeping Your Pets Safe All Year Round: An Infographic

In a recent National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA), it reveals that at least 68 percent of the households in the United States own a pet. This means that around 85 million families have adopted and nurtured at least one pet in their homes. Most households are providing shelter for dogs and cats.

The same national survey also shows the basic yearly expenditures for pets: surgical and routinary veterinary, food, kennel boarding, vitamins, grooming, and toys. Pet-industry expenditures accounted to at least $69.4 billion in 2017.

There are traditional events that every family observes in their households: Thanksgiving, Hannukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year, and Halloween. While the lovely pets can join the fun, there are certain hazards that these traditional events may pose to animals. With a growing number of households that are keen to raise pets, animal lovers tend to forget one important matter—keeping their pets safe and sound.

This infographic is your perfect guide in making sure that your pet is safe by avoiding holiday hazards. Essential tips include practical things to do and not to do in every holiday and basic reminders that every pet owner must put in mind.

Aside from providing pets the bare necessities, proactive and preventive measures should be adopted in every household to ensure that pets will be spared from any unforeseen event. It is better to assure their safety than to feel sorry for the lack of foresight in avoiding misfortune.

In your homes, you too should pour your best efforts to keep your place safe for your pets. Read on for more information.
