I’ve noticed lately quite a few commercials on TV about making sure your prescription drugs are out of reach of your teenagers and children. But is everyone making sure all medication is out of reach of your pets? I’m sure you all realize that if your pet accidentally eats medication of any kind, you need to seek immediate veterinary assistance. Most common human medications are poisonous to animals. But what about medication safely stored in childproof bottles? If the bottle is out on a counter or table, your pet can get it. And childproof does not mean puppyproof.

One day when Sadie was a puppy, I dropped an empty pill bottle as I was throwing it into the trash can. Sadie started playing with it, rolling it around on the floor with her paws. I thought it was adorable and grabbed the camera. After a while she began chewing on the bottle. In under five minutes she got the cap completely off of the pill bottle. That’s when I took it away from her, of course. But it made me realize that if I had dropped a full pill bottle and wasn’t there to notice that Sadie was playing with it, she could have gotten it open just as easily and eaten the pills inside. From then on I made sure to keep any medication in drawers or cabinets that she couldn’t possibly open. Because that is the only way to keep your medications completely pet-proof.
