5 Quick Ways To Keep Your Pets Safe

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

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

-- 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.

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

-- Keep all painting supplies in closed cabinets.
