This Valentine’s Day Better be Safe than Sorry! (Guest Post)

Valentine's Day, the day on which the whole world celebrates love, should always be memorable and not in any way disastrous for anyone, especially the furry members of your family. Some of the common gifts that one receives during Valentine's Day are chocolates, flowers, and baked goods like cookies with chocolate chips or nuts. If you forget to secure these items in an area that is not accessible to your dog, your dog is sure going to get at it. Dogs are curious by nature and if they see something new or smell something new in their surroundings, they are going to go after it. Once they realize that what he smells is edible, it's difficult for him to stop himself.

Did you know that lilies are poisonous to dogs and cats? Dogs love to eat flowers and might eat lilies and get seriously harmed. If your dog tries to chew the roses that have thorns, he can injure himself. Chocolates have a high amount of sugar and hence are very harmful to your dog's health. 

Well, the list is never-ending, and as a pet parent, it is extremely important for you to make sure that your pet is safe during Valentine's Day. This infographic lists a number of safety tips for pet parents to have a safe and pet-friendly Valentine’s Day.
