Air vents that are low to the ground or on the floor can be easy for your pets to reach. While they may seem relatively harmless, the problem is that claws can easily get stuck in them.

Smaller animals can even get a paw jammed into the vent. That’s why it’s a good idea to get vent covers that block your pet from getting something stuck. Plus, it helps prevent dander and fur from slipping into the vent and blowing all over the house.
