Be aware of the risk of suffocation

We do our best to make our homes safe for our dogs, but the risk of suffocation is not something we think of - puppies are especially at risk due their insatiable curiosity, older dogs can get themselves in trouble too.

Remember to rip/cut open food bags or cut the bottom off before throwing them away.

Prevent Pet Suffocation

'Don't pity the rescue dog. Adopt one. And be proud to have their greatness by your side.'

This is something I never heard of until about a year ago when a golden on this forum ( Cookie ) passed away by getting his head stuck in a potato chip bag. Just last week, on the FB page for dogs that have suffocated, one had died getting his head stuck in a Cheez Itz box.

I just spent this morning going through a "snack cabinet" and threw away about a dozen boxes that just had a couple crackers in it, or pieces of cereal, breaking down the boxes because I knew my kids would not eat what was left, and if the cabinet door was left open, a dog might walk away with one.
