Which reminds me – if you put on gloves to use it, that's a sign it's probably not very pet-friendly! In 2008, Animal Poison Control handled approximately 5,500 cases of exposure to other less common but often more serious chemical hazards around the home that cause tummy upset, difficulty breathing, and chemical burns.
- Pet's tip: You know if you have substances such as paint thinner and pool/spa chemicals around your house. But also very deadly are the more common drain cleaners that could be sitting out next to the toilet. Especially noteworthy is the very tempting antifreeze – this sweet tasting substance is likely to be licked up by even the most discerning pets.
