If I Only Knew: 101 Essential Tips You Need To Raise A Happy, Healthy, Safe Dog - Book Review

I’m sure you wouldn’t do anything to harm your dog on purpose. But what if it was an accident? 

ac-ci-dent [ˈak-sə-dənt] - an unforeseen or unplanned event resulting in damage or injury, typically brought on by carelessness, inexperience or a lack of awareness

I remember a line from a children’s book I read a long time ago:
“An accidentally broken wasp nest, and a deliberately broken wasp nest look exactly the same.”

There are no shortcuts in life ... or are there?

You can learn things in two ways. Either through trial and error, or by learning from those who already have the experience and knowledge.

Which do you think is better when it comes to your dog's health and safety?

Did you ever have to rush your dog to the emergency with something that could have been easily prevented if you only knew better?

Prevention is the best medicine. But you can only protect your dog from dangers you’re aware of.

We cannot protect our dogs from everything but many things we can and should protect them from. Do you know what they are?

The most common reasons why dogs end up in the emergency
  • Trauma/injury
  • Digestive distress
  • Poisoning
  • Choking
  • Seizures
  • Heatstroke
  • Drugs

How many of these do you think can be prevented?

The Humane Society of the U.S. estimates that up to 10,000 cats and dogs die each year from exposure to ethylene glycol containing antifreeze.

In 2009 the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center handled:
  • 45,816 calls involving prescription and over-the-counter drugs such as painkillers, cold  medications, antidepressants and dietary supplements
  • 29,020 calls related to insecticides
  • 17,453 calls pertaining to people food

  • 4,143 for household cleaners
  • 3,304 related to heavy metals (lead, zinc, and mercury)
  • 2,329 for fertilizer and other garden products
  • 2,175 for household and automotive chemicals
