Do You Feel Like This After Snacking? 

With the New Year under way many of us are still recovering from the indulgences of the weeks past.  But the snow and cold weather often lead to snuggling with a furry friend and bag of snacks while watching TV.  Although fun at the time, snacking can cause health problems for you but fatal consequences for your furry companions. 

Often times people unknowingly place their pets in a dangerous situation by not thinking through the consequences of their actions or in-actions.  Animals, like humans, love to nibble on the crumbs left in a salty snack bag.  However, this natural inclination can and has caused feline and canine fatalities.  As a pet enjoys lapping up the last few crumbs out of the chip bag, the bag begins to suffocate the pet as it encloses around their head.  As the pet begins to panic, breathing steadily quicker in a  rush to remove the bag ,  breathing in the remaining air in the bag makes the bag collapse around the pet's head causing suffocation.

To prevent this tragedy from occurring we suggest:
    1.  NEVER leave a partially empty snack bag where 
         your pet can reach it.
    2.  Keep scissors by your garbage can and simple cut
         the bottom off empty chip bags (or any bags for that
         matter) before discarding in the trash.
