Spring is now upon us and families across the UK are ready to give their house a good clear out and enjoy more time in the garden, many with their pets.
Vets are urging pet owners to be careful when spring cleaning, as there are many hidden dangers lurking around the house which could harm pets.
From marbles falling out of a child’s toy box, toxic cleaning products not put back in the kitchen cupboard or sharp gardening tools left lying in the garden, pets may just see a ‘new toy’ and not a danger.
Spring is a great time to give the house a clean and have a clear out, from the wardrobe to the garden shed. But pet owners need to be aware of the risks these activities can pose to their pets.
No pet is immune to these dangers; cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters can all be affected.
