Plumbing Services Tips For Pet Owners

Our pets are a part of our family, right? Meaning, just like we protect our kids, we need to protect our pets from the dangers that come along with our plumbing appliances. Pets are just like kids in that they love to explore and get into things they shouldn’t, yes even your plumbing appliances and cleaners. To avoid putting your pet’s health at risk, Mr. Rooter Plumbing came up with some safety tips that will help protect your pets from your plumbing appliances.

Has your pet experienced a plumbing-related problem or injury? If so, then you probably know how scary it can be. It’s so important to protect your pets from your different appliances by doing these 5 things…

  • Keep your lids closed

One of the most important things you can do to protect your pets from any plumbing issues is keeping your toilet bowls lid closed. It’s no surprise that does will drink the water from your toilet bowl when you aren’t looking. There could be things like chemical residue leftover, or there can be bacteria in your toilet bowl that aren’t safe for them to digest. Keeping your lids closed is one of the safest ways to protect your animals.

  • Don’t leave chemicals out

Mr. Rooter Plumbing recommends keeping your bathroom or plumbing cleaners in a safe, protected space so your pets don’t have any chance of getting into them. These cleaning chemicals can be poisonous to animals, so make sure you keep them in a safe place that no matter what, they can’t get into them.

  • Cover your pipes

It’s no surprise that dogs love to chew on anything they can get their paws on, no exceptions. If you have an exposed pipe anywhere inside or outside your home, what’s to stop your dog from biting on it? Make sure you cover any exposed piping so you can protect your family and your furry friends.

  • Don’t let them dig

When you see a dog digging, what do you think they are looking for? While they may be looking for a treat they hid days again, they may also run into some underground piping. Some of your plumbing pipes aren’t more than 2 feet deep in the ground, so if your dog has a habit of digging deep trenches, you’ll want to nip that in the butt before something serious happens.

  • Use a drain stopper

Does your furry friend love to roll in the mud? If so, this can cause serious damage to your plumbing drains. If you have to clean your furry friend off before they come inside, Mr. Rooter Plumbing recommends you hose the dirt off outside so you don’t put your drains at risk.
