Pesticides Can Cause Issues in Pets
If you do not use green pest control, you may end up exposing your pets to a number of dangerous chemicals that have potentially devastating results. The following are some of the commonly used pesticides and how they can have an effect on your pets:
- Organophosporus: Symptoms can be anything from mild to severe, and may include sweating, tremors, vomiting, diarrhea, coma and death
- Rodenticides: These rodent-killing products contain strychnine, warfarin, metaldehyde and other lethal ingredients. The most severe symptoms caused by the products include respiratory paralysis, violent seizures and death
- Pyrethroids: These transdermal products, which are used in flea collars and shampoos, can result in salivating, seizures, tremors and death
- Arsenic: Many herbicides, pesticides, wood preservatives and insecticides include arsenic, which is deadly when ingested.
Due to the potentially severe effects these chemicals can have on your pets, it is important to make sure that you avoid using these particular products if you are dealing with a pest infestation.
Symptoms to Look For
Understanding which symptoms to look for can be very helpful in avoiding a condition getting worse. In the event of an emergency involving your pet, it is always best to immediately contact your veterinarian. If you ever have any doubts, it is always better to err on the side of caution, as this will help to ensure that you avoid any serious repercussions for your pets.
