MEDIA ADVISORY - Pet Safety Week 2013 - A Tip a Day to Keep Your Pets Safe

TORONTO, Oct. 23, 2013 /CNW/ - As part of Pet Safety Week - October 20 - 26, Toronto Hydro-Electric System Limited ("Toronto Hydro") and the Toronto Humane Society are sharing daily tips to help pet owners keep their family pets safe.

TODAY'S TIP: How to make a balcony suitable for pets

No pet should ever be left on a balcony all day, but there are ways to make a balcony suitable and safe for your pet. Place protective fencing against the balcony's rails to keep the pet securely inside. Depending on the size of your pet, you may need to add height to the railing to keep the animal from jumping over.  Pay attention to your pets when windows are open or when pets are on the balcony, and never leave them unattended.

There are many hazards that pet owners may not be aware of. From poisonous plants to dangling electric cords, bored cats and dogs are more likely to find ways to get into trouble.  There are few resources available for new and seasoned pet owners on overall safety. Pet Safety Week arms pet owners with simple strategies on how to stay safe year-round.
