Your four-legged friend is a valued member of the family; you buy your pet the best food, schedule vet visits, and offer lots of cuddling. Your Frederick, Maryland, home might contain elements you didn’t even know are harmful to your pet. Make sure your house is free of certain chemicals, plants, and other hazards that might make your pet sick.


You spray flea and tick insecticides because you want to protect your animals and your family from these nasty pests. The way you treat for fleas and ticks can endanger your pets, especially if it involves buying a spray at the store and treating the whole house. Be sure to read instructions closely.

Lilies and Other Household Plants

Many common household plants are dangerous to pets, who love to chew on things they shouldn’t. Plants like azaleas, mistletoe, and Schefflera cause problems for pets when ingested. Lilies can cause kidney failure in cats even when the cat has only ingested a small amount.

People Food

An adorable dog or cat begging under the dinner table is hard to ignore, but you must do so out of love! Lots of human foods, including grapes, chocolate, onions, garlic, nuts, yeast, and coffee will hurt an animal’s digestive system. If you want to feed your dog or cat a specialized diet, talk to your vet about how to prepare safe foods or invest in a high-quality refrigerated pet food.

Bad Indoor Air Quality

Pets with respiratory issues will have a harder time with bad IAQ, just like humans do. Be sure to monitor your humidity levels and change your HVAC air filters once every month or two!

At Griffith Energy Services, we love pets. We call ourselves “Doggone Dependable” for a reason, after all! So if you have a pet with asthma or other respiratory problems, give us a call. We’ll take a look at your HVAC system and examine your IAQ. Both you and your pets will feel better with humidity issues addressed and particulates filtered out of your indoor air. Reach us at 888-474-3391.
