Security for Your Furry Friends

Keeping Your Pet Healthy and Secure

Anyone who has a fur baby knows how important it is to keep our little pets healthy and secure. When we are gone for the day, it may weigh on us the risk our pets are exposed to us. At any time, they could be threatened by a house fire, by damage done to the home by a falling tree or out-of-control vehicle, or through a break-in by neighborhood hooligans. There are a variety of ways, fortunately, for homeowners and renters in this day and age to protect our furry friends at home.

Keep Your Pet Tagged

Perhaps the most simple thing you can do is to keep your pet tagged. If your pet is fit 24/7 with an identifying piece, he or she is likely to be recovered at a time where your pet goes missing. Some pet owners don't opt to get a chip for their pets. Others stick to the original tags that display pet name, owner name, and contact information. Whichever you choose, both are incredibly important. Most important, however, will be having a collar on your pet that is not a threat to your pet's life. There are many styles of collars, but perhaps the best kind is the quick-release, which prevents your pet from getting caught on branches or other things. Its quick-release means your pet might lose its collar, but it only loses its collar in an effort to escape choking threats by hanging or something equally as tragic.

Stay Up on Health

Another simple way to protect your pet is to keep up on its health situation. As simple as it might seem, keeping pets up to date on their vaccination and having them neutered are all important steps to securing their healthy future. If you are able to, keep your pet regular check ups and make sure they are protected against everything they may become exposed to. This is especially important for those whose pets go outside. Pets who are inside are less threatened by the diseases outdoor animals may be exposed to, but they should still be monitored in the event that they escape or are exposed to an animal with a disease. Keeping their health in check is a simple way to protect them regularly.

Pet Security

Finally, we are able to invest in the newest kinds of technology like home security cameras to keep our furry friends safe at home. One of the easiest ways to do this is to install such security cameras that are capable of monitoring our pets. Not only can we check if someone comes to break in or messes with our property, but we can also monitor—in general—the property and see any suspicious activity. Furthermore, we can see what our pets are up to throughout the day, and even speak to them through some of the microphone options that are now available on many video devices. When we are able to watch our pets every minute of the day, especially from our phone and other easily accessible devices, we can make easy choices and feel safe knowing our pets are safe.

There are so many ways for us to be able to make sure our pets are both healthy, as well as secure. We can make sure our pets are properly identified, that they have all of their health checks up to date, and that they are under regular surveillance through easily accessible technology options. We are so fortunate that, in this day and time, we know the best ways to protect our furry family members and that we have access to so many technologies for monitoring our pets during the day. These technologies give us the leg up for responding to break ins or other tragedies that we may fear our homes are vulnerable towards. Thankfully, we have to power to keep our pets safe.
