Tippy & Alfred want you to know about Dog and Cat Poisoning:
How you can Prevent your Pet from being Poisoned.

Did you realize your home may be hazardous to your pet's health? Poisons lurk in your bathroom, kitchen, garage and shop.

Playful and curious, many pets leap tall counters in a single bound, paw open cabinets, chew through childproof caps and containers, and have the judgment of a 2-year-old!

Consider that cats and dogs roam the house unsupervised for hours, and you'll understand why they are especially at risk of being poisoned...unless you properly safeguard them.  

Put any substances that you'd consider hazardous to a toddler out of your pet's reach. This includes medications, cleaning products, household and garden chemicals, insect and rodent killers and automotive products.

Keep pets out of areas where you're working with chemicals, and store those substances properly. In the few moments while you dash to answer the telephone, our friends Snowball or Rover could sample the paint remover, bleach or antifreeze.

A surprisingly small amount of these substances can harm your pet. For instance, one teaspoon of undiluted antifreeze/ coolant can kill a 7 pound cat! Be careful also of any new items you bring home. Pets, like children, are curious. They tend to investigate when they're alone and bored.  


Household Cleaners & Chemicals that are potentially Toxic to your Pet include:

Boric acid
Pine oil cleaners
Toilet bowl cleaners
Dishwashing detergents
Drain cleaners
Commercial solvents

Signs of toxicity: Vomiting, depression, CNS depression, anorexia, diarrhea, muscle weakness, ataxia, seizures, hyperactivity, salivation.  


Our pets live close to the ground, closer to pollutants that emanate from synthetic carpets, or to cleaning solvents used on the floor, or to the herbicides and pesticides sprayed in the yard.
