How to keep the dog out of the litter box

If you have both a dog and a cat in your family there can be some trouble in the house, even if they get along great. Maybe your dog wonders into the cat’s litter box and creates a mess, or worse, gets sick from eating kitty litter. If this is the case, it can become much more serious in the long run and a dog can develop health problems. Luckily, the Peek a Boo Pet Latch may be just what you need to keep your furry family members safe and healthy.

Woof Woof Castle, LLC is proud to announce the new product that will keep dogs out of the cat’s litter box once and for all. The Peek a Boo Pet Latch will keep pets from getting into the cat’s litter box and getting sick from eating cat feces. Unfortunately, this is a common problem and is much more serious than it may sound.

The pet latch was created by Peggy Sue Soutner and her husband John, who learned the dangers of a cat’s litter box from personal experience. Aussie, the Soutner’s dog, developed pancreatitis from eating cat feces out of the little box. This creates inflammation and swelling of the pancreas, which can be either mild or serve. Dogs require hospitalization to treat dehydration, and they also need antibiotics to prevent bacterial infections. Something that seems as harmless as wandering in to the cat’s litter box to make a mess can actually be a serious health risk for dogs.

However, all of this can be prevented with the new Peek a Boo Pet Latch. The product will prevent entry into the room where the litter box is stored, which is the first step in keeping dogs safe. The latch only works for pets and still makes it easy for humans to enter the room.
