Be sure to check labels for dangerous ingredients. If you have a puppy, make sure valuables and small items the puppy could get into are off the floor.

The ASPCA Poison Control Hotline (888-426-4435) can provide additional information about household chemicals and plants that can be harmful to your pets.
