Be sure to keep your dog away from meat bones, corn cobs, foil, plastic wrap, and wooden skewers. Make sure these items are properly disposed of and that your dog cannot get to them. Your dog cannot digest these items and they can become lodged in the throat or intestines. If grease from food is spilled on stones or gravel, make sure your dog does not try to lick or eat it.
Lastly, keep your dog in view and make sure he doesn’t wander off. Not only is there a risk of your dog getting lost, but if a dog becomes trapped in a greenhouse for example, the temperature inside can reach dangerous levels very quickly.
Do not allow your dog to drink chlorinated or salt water and be sure to wash off any pool chemicals, salt water, sand etc. after swimming as these can damage your dog’s skin.
