Hey folks, this is so important for everyone to know about. We thought we’d share this yearly Dangers of Pet Suffocation campaign from our friend the Preventive Vet with you and hope you’ll pass it along.
“Pet suffocation in snack, cereal and other bags and containers happens often – and it happens quickly, too. And it happens to both cats and dogs. Many people have returned home, or walked into another room, to find a bag covering their beloved dog’s head. Sadly, many of these dogs are already dead by the time they are found.
While some fortunate dogs are saved by timely and appropriate CPR, their numbers pale in comparison to those who don’t survive sticking their head into a bag.
Please explore the following poster and share the resources on this page – together we can (and should) prevent pet suffocation!”

Yep this happened to one of my friends. Her roommate left a chip bag on the floor she came home to find her Corgi suffocated. 🙁
I am always aware of stuff laying on the floor ie kids toys.
