Pest Control

Spring brings ants in and around your home. Ant baits use peanut butter and end up luring dogs to nibble on them as well. The chemicals are not nearly as dangerous as the risk of gastrointestinal upset from swallowing the plastic. The misuse of flea and tick products is another major risk. Flea and tick medications only made for dogs can never be used on a cat because of different metabolisms unless otherwise stated.
