Pet safety: Gorilla Glue

We all work hard to give our pets the best lives possible. We give them great food, fun toys, loads of attention, and try to keep them safe from harm. However, keeping them safe isn't always easy as we’d like. Whether it's darting out the front door or eating something that they shouldn't, our pets can be great at getting into trouble.
