It's a well known fact that many common houseplants and garden plants can and do poison cats and dogs if eaten.

It's apparently a carcinogen only in CA and the EU. Here in the REAL WORLD it is not. The label states that one should keep the pets off a sprayed area for a day- but that's a legal declaimer and has no basis in fact.


Your dog's demise was either an unfortunate coincidence or perhaps it ate poisonous plants. It takes YEARS for exposures to carcinogens to cause cancer. Besides, glyphosate is quickly transported to the root system and is generally absent from the air-exposed shoots & leaves that a pet might contact.


Herbicides inhibit PLANT enzymes that do not occur in animals. No need to worry.

Weed whacker. You can even get one with wheels on that self feeds. 100% safe for your dogs. Unless you scatter gravel while weed whacking, that's about the worst of it.

And yes, pets can die from the junk we put on our yards. Or YOUR pet can die of what YOU put on YOUR yard, because none of that stuff goes anywhere in my yard, thankyouverymuch.
