Hi I'm Olive. Even though I stay indoors, that doesn't mean I am safe from lawn and landscape chemicals. Dangerous lawn and landscape chemicals can be tracked inside on shoes and clothing. Once indoors, out of direct sunlight, chemicals can persist in fabrics and on rugs for up to TWO YEARS!
I love to nap on the couch, to play and roll on the rug, (and if you ask me, shoes are fantastic to chew!) The problem is my soft paws, underbelly, eyes and noses are all susceptible to chemical exposure, and chemicals cause everything from minor skin irritation to liver, kidney and GI tract damage in cats.
Please keep poisons out of my house, make a donation to the PRFCT #protectyourpet campaign and spread the message.
No Poison on My Paws
Keep an eye out on your walks this month. This is the time of year that people think their lawns need chemical applications in order to be green and beautiful (false!)
Look for little pellets in the grass, yellow pesticide application signs and move your walk to the other side of the road, especially if your precious pet is with you! Our soft paws, underbelly, eyes and noses are all susceptible to chemical exposure. They are linked to health hazards from skin rashes to bladder cancer and canine lymphoma.
