Learn about Pet Fire Safety Month

July is National Pet Fire Safety Month, and at Day Creek Animal Hospital we urge every pet owner to take steps to make sure their homes are free of pet fire danger. Surprisingly, at least 1,000 home fires are started by pets each year. By making some simple changes in your home and lifestyle, you can virtually prevent the dangers of pets starting fires in your home.

Our Veterinarian Discusses Fire Safety

Dr. Sidhu, our veterinarian in Rancho Cucamonga, is dedicated to making sure each patient is safe, both in our office and at home. Take time to make your home free of fire hazards by making a few basic changes.

  • Remove your stove knobs or use knob covers every time you leave your house
  • Never leave unattended open flames around. That includes candles, fireplaces, and even cooking appliances like fondue pots
  • Switch to flameless candle for the same look with much less danger. 
  • Secure puppies and kittens in other rooms when you're using open flames. Young pets can run into fire danger before you have a chance to catch them

How to Address a Burn on Your Pet

If an accident happens and your dog or cat gets burned, do you know what to do? The first step is to make sure there is no more fire, to prevent any further damage. Secure your pet in a safe spot, with a cone, or muzzle if necessary. Apply cool water with a sterile compress, but don't wrap the injury. Call our office and transport your pet to us for treatment, as soon as possible. Don't break any blisters that have formed, and avoid any type of burn cream or ointment.
