Pet of the week
Product overuse or misuse can severely injure pets
When applying a flea control product to your pet or in and around your home, the most important thing to do is first read the directions and cautions on the product label.
It is 90 simple it is ignored. The key is to be very careful in applying products. Apply a pesticide product at the recommended label rate rather than using the concept ’if a little could do the job, a lot is better.*
You are dealing with chemicals that could cause some problems, and the most common misuse of a product is overdosing.
Applying too much of a flea control product on a pet can cause symptoms ranging from excessive salivation, muscle tremors, seizures or even death.
Most animal owners want veterinarians to assure them the product will never cause problems. The veterinarian can do that but only if he tells the owner to follow label directions exactly.
Another common product misuse that can lead to physical problems in pets is that of using products labeled for dog use only, a dip for example, on cats.
As in the case of an overdose, cats treated with dog-only products run the risk of unremitting depression, lack of appetite, seizures, and eventual death if no efforts are taken to save the ani
Treatments for this kind of misuse often take weeks or even months.
A third common misuse of products is using products labeled for household use on pets.
Such products could be a carpet or furniture spray or a lawn treatment to cite a few examples. Misuse, once again, could cause problems including seizures or death in an animal. Misusing products could also cause similar health concerns in humans.
Although many flea control products on the market are of low toxicity to dogs, cats and humans, any sort of misuse or straying from label directions can present health threats to you or your pet.
When using pesticides for flea control, make sure to wash your hands after use and be sure to use some sort of protective clothing and/ or gloves.
And follow this bit of advice: The most important thing is to read the label directions. If you follow the label, you will not have problems.
