Technology can make our lives easier, but electrical cords can be a hazard to our pets. Check out these tips to keep your pets from chewing something they shouldn’t.

Here are some more safety tips from the folks at Dogtime:

• Protect wiring with tough plastic cable covers, aluminum foil tape or double-sided tape.
• When not using them, place electronics well out of a pet’s reach.
• Use a tough protective cover on outlets.
• Never place gadgets near your coffee cup or other liquids.

“We were giving our dogs a bath, when Violet put her foot over the drain and her toenails went through the holes. When Violet tried to get out of the tub, several of her nails snapped off. She was bleeding pretty badly, so we rushed her to the emergency veterinary hospital. She was sedated, given antibiotics and her foot was sterilized and wrapped. I was thankful for Violet’s ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan!” –Elaine K., Scranton, PA

"My dog Molly was a year old when I came home to find a chewed up container on the floor. It used to contain five fishing flies, but I only found two. I immediately called my awesome vet.

I told him what happened, and he said bring her in for X-rays. And there they were, three flies in her belly. He gave me a mixture to feed her and after a week, the flies had passed.

Thanks to my ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan for making this emergency manageable!” -David H., Boulder, CO
