cats chewing cords

Electrocution of Dogs & Cats

Did you know that when dogs and cats chew on power cords, the risk of electrical dangers and house fires greatly increase? Chewing can cause short circuits which means that the electrical flow deviates from the intended pathway which can lead to electrical shock and burn from the intense heat. If you suspect that your pet has been harmed, go to the veterinarian clinic immediately. Here are some signs to look out for:


  • Lethargy
  • Seizures
  • Crying
  • Burn
  • Increased heart rate
  • Unconsciousness
