As pet owners, we are always looking to reduce the toxic chemicals in our homes by buying pet-friendly cleaners and household products, but have you ever thought about the toxic chemicals that are on your lawn?
Most lawn care companies are focused on how your lawn looks not on how the products they use are affecting your pets. Unfortunately for this, they don’t take into consideration how toxic the chemicals they are using are for you and your pet.
Here are just some of the harmful effects pesticides can have on your pet, according to Angi:
Rapid heart rate
Canine malignant lymphoma
Pesticide usage around your pet can have dangerous, long-lasting and irreversible effects. Before you allow your lawn care company to spray your grass with pesticides, ask them if what they use is pet-friendly. The likelihood is that they aren’t using pet-safe pesticides because there’s only a small percentage of pesticides that are 100% safe for pets.
Some of the chemicals you want to watch out for in pesticides are Malathion, Acephate, Parathion, Chlorpyrifos, Terbufos, Diazinon, Carbofuran, Disulfoton, Methomyl, Fonofos and Metaldehyde.
Disclaimer: If you believe your pet has been exposed to toxic lawn chemicals and is showing signs of pesticide poisoning please take your pet to the vet right away as this can become fatal.
