Health Tip: Safe Dog Toys
-- Toys are key to your dog's well-being, since they can help fight boredom and provide comfort for your dog, says the Humane Society of the United States.
The society offers these guidelines for pet owners:
- Do not let your dog play with string, rubber bands or other items that could be swallowed.
- Buy toys of appropriate size for your dog.
- Avoid toys with dangerous fillings, such as polystyrene beads.
