Safety Tips

Along with having your home checked by a trained electrician, you can also do some other things to protect your family pet from electrical hazards.

Purchase Good Equipment – Don’t skimp on good equipment, it can and will save your pet’s life in certain circumstances. Cords are generally exposed in your home and cheaper products are more likely to overheat, so buy good equipment that won’t cause injuries to your pets.

Keep Cords Together – Buy a product that enables you to wrap all your cords together and hide them out of sight.

Unplug Cords – Many of us have a habit of leaving TV’s and phones on overnight, if your pet is wandering around and gets tangled in a cord, they could easily get electrocuted or start a major fire in your home.
