Have you ever found a stray chewed up bottle from medicine, vitamins, spices, etc. that you weren’t sure if it was pulled out of the trash empty, or stolen from a cabinet full? Of course, one way to prevent this is to keep the cabinets shut with child/puppy proof locks, and the trash safely out of reach of the dog. But, things happen, stuff gets left out, trash bins accessible, etc. So, if you’re throwing away an empty bottle, jar, canister, packaging, from something dangerous for the dog to eat, use a permanent marker to write ’empty’ on it before tossing it out. That way, if you find it chewed up later, you don’t have to worry that your dog just ate 200 acetaminophen tablets!
