Fertilizers

Severity scale:
Caution
This toxin is considered to be a moderate risk. However, your pet's medical history, age, weight, and breed could put him/her at higher risk. It is advised that you contact whiskerDocs or your primary veterinarian for further guidance about any steps you may need to take to ensure your pet's safety. If you choose to, you may monitor your pet closely, but the onset or worsening of any of the below symptoms warrants a trip to the emergency room.

If you plan to do any gardening this spring, be sure to keep Fido and Fluffy away while you are sprucing up the garden. Do not let them in the garden until the products have been absorbed into the soil (after it rains or after 24 hours for spray on products). If swallowed, most pets will experience some mild GI concerns. If skin or eyes are exposed, please wash or flush the area with water.
