Every room of your house could present hazards to your dog if there are certain items lying around. If you're concerned about your kitchen, this guide will help you pet-proof your eating area. Keep human food that can be dangerous to pets out of their reach. Human food, such as chocolate, can cause vomiting, diarrhea and shaking if consumed in large enough amounts. Keep a tamper-proof lid on your trash. When you toss out spoiled food, it may contain toxins that could cause your dog seizures and vomiting. Make sure household cleaners are locked away in a pet-proof cabinet and out of reach of your dog. Bleach products can cause burns in the mouth and stomach upset and irritation. If you have mouse bait, keep it in an area your pet can't get to. These products can cause bleeding, difficulty in breathing and in severe cases - death.
