Household Items Your Pets Should Avoid

There are some things that our pets love to get their paws on. Dr Chris shows you what they should avoid...

"Now when we have a late night snack, it usually involves a trip to the pantry, but our pets, well they're a lot more inventive.

Cats and dogs love playing with string, they also can't resist swallowing it. This causes blockages in the gut and usually requires surgery.

If you leave your socks and undies lying around, they'll also end up on the menu.

Toys and teddy bears are also tempting to chew, but missing eyes, legs or other parts could mean a costly trip to the vet. The same with cooked bones, but make sure when you throw them out, your inquisitive little mate can't get to them behind your back."
