Onions are NOT your pets best friend

Onions and garlic in all forms — powdered, raw, cooked, or dehydrated — can destroy a dog’s red blood cells, leading to anemia. That can happen even with the onion powder found in some baby food. An occasional small dose is probably OK. But just eating a large quantity once or eating smaller amounts regularly can cause poisoning. Symptoms of anemia include weakness, vomiting, little interest in food, dullness, and breathlessness.

Your Child’s Toys (or your pets?)

Have you ever seen your child with one of the dogs chew bones in their mouth or your dog chewing on your child’s favorite toy?

While it may be somewhat disgusting when it happens, the toys can be easily cleaned with products that are made with natural based ingredients that are safe for your children and pets.

Washable toys can be soaked in a solution of Sol-U-Mel and Tough & Tender, rinsed and dried.

Toys that cannot be soaked can be simply sprayed with Sol-U-Guard Botanical disinfectant. Let them air dry and let the chewing begin …

Just imagine, cleaning your Child’s Toys (or your pets?) while keeping them safe and healthy. What a great feeling …

Alcohol is not good for your dog!

Beer, liquor, wine, foods containing alcohol — none of them are good for your dog. That’s because alcohol has the same effect on a dog’s liver and brain that it has on humans. But it takes far less to do its damage. Just a little can cause vomiting, diarrhea, central nervous system depression, problems with coordination, difficulty breathing, coma, even death. And the smaller the dog, the greater the effect.

 

Avocados can be toxic for your dog

No matter how good you think the guacamole is, you shouldn’t give it to your dog. Avocados contain a substance called persin. It’s harmless for humans who aren’t allergic. But large amounts might be toxic to dogs. If you happen to be growing avocados at home, keep your dog away from the plants. Persin is in the leaves, seed, and bark, as well as in the fruit.

Chocolate is very dangerous for most dogs …
