Promenade at Carillon features a pet-friendly community that is perfect for you and your canine or feline companion. However, there are some extra things you can do to “pet-proof” our apartments in North St. Petersburg, FL. Here are a few tips to ensure that your pet is happy and healthy in your apartment home.
The living room is presumably a high traffic area of your home. This means that there are plenty of potential hazards for your pup or cat to encounter. Make sure to consistently vacuum or sweep the floors so that your pet does not swallow or choke on small items. Be sure that any electrical cords or important possessions are out of reach so that your pet does not chew them.
The kitchen can also present many hazards for your pet. Use plastic “baby proof” latches to make sure cabinets and cupboards are secure. This is important as this is where toxic cleaning solutions and non-perishable foods are typically stored. It’s tempting to give your pet scraps of food, but there are certain foods that can cause illness or even death. Make sure that raisins, grapes, chicken bones, and chocolate are out of reach.
Curious cats or dogs may wander into your bathroom and explore. Make sure you have all medications locked away in the cabinet so that your pet does not ingest any human meds. Use a covered waste bin so that your pet can’t get into the bathroom garbage. Keep your pets from drinking out of the toilet by making sure that the lid is down. If exposed, it’s possible that your pup could drink toilet cleaner and get sick or even be injured by a falling lid.
The key to making your pets safe at our apartments in North St. Petersburg, FL is to think like a dog or cat. Assess each room and look for any potential hazards. Be aware of what your pet can and can’t reach. It’s suggested to closely supervise your pet in the first two weeks in a new apartment to make sure it is adjusting well.
