Lawn Treatment Can Be Toxic To Your Pet

doglawnIf you are planning to use pesticides or fertilizers on your lawn, you must think about the affect they may have on your cat or dog. Keep your dog or cat (if he goes outside) inside for at least 24 hours after applying any chemical to your lawn. If he must go out, keep him on his dog leash and away from the treated areas.Don’t toss around any dog toys to him or give him the opportunity to pick up anything on the treated lawn. There’s no need to panic. If applied properly, these chemicals can irritate your dog or cats paws but they rarely can poison a pet. Clean up any pesticide spills. A puddle of the stuff could be dangerous to your pet. Please note that research had shown an increase in cases of lymphoma in dogs that were exposed to the herbicide 2 4 D. Make sure that you read all of the labels and take the proper precautions.

dogsniffWe think that we know everything about our dogs. Their favorite dog treat, dog food, dog bed, toy etc. but our best friends have some secrets. Here are some things that you may not have have know about dogs.

  1. The smell center of a dogs brain is 40 times larger than ours. Dogs can smell thousands of times better than us. We have 5 million scent receptors while a dog has 125 million. That’s why they can smell things like drugs, dead bodies, bed bugs, explosives, and more.
  2. Dogs dream like people.Researchers found that dogs have similar sleep patterns and brain activity as humans, and that small breeds tend to dream more than large ones.
  3. Dogs are as smart as a two year old baby. Your best friend can count, understand over 150 words, and even trick you into giving him a dog treat.
  4. Dogs only mate twice a year. Unspayed females only go into heat twice a year so breeders must plan carefully.
  5. Tail wagging has it’s own language.You think that if your dog is excitedly wagging his tail, he’s happy right? Not necessarily. Dog wag their tails to the right when they’re happy and to the left when they’re frightened.

We learn new things everyday about our best friends.
