Secure Your Cords

Pets are often attracted to electrical cords, making them a tempting chew toy. Despite your best efforts to discourage chewing behavior, cords remain enticing. To mitigate risks, tuck away cords where pets can’t access them easily. By keeping cords out of sight, you reduce the likelihood of your pet getting entangled or injured.

Unplug Electronics When Idle

Some pets have a knack for picking up and carrying electronic devices around the house. Protect your pet by unplugging and powering off electronics when not in use. While your pet may still investigate or even damage a device, removing its power source minimizes the risk of electrocution or injury.

Be Prepared for Emergencies

In the unfortunate event of an electric shock, swift action is crucial. Immediately unplug any electrical components involved and remove them from your pet’s vicinity. Assess your pet for injuries, checking their pulse, breathing, and any signs of burns. If you suspect electrocution, seek veterinary assistance promptly or take your pet to an emergency clinic. Continuously monitor your pet’s condition for the next 24-48 hours.
