Q: Skull and Crossbones Stickers for Pet-Toxic Foods?

There are so many labels for foods that show their contents, but what about having stickers (maybe veterinarian offices could offer them, or pet stores, or we could have them made) with a TTP Toxic To Pet sticker with a skull and crossbones on the sticker?

The stickers could be placed on grapes, raisins, chocolate (especially baking chocolate), etc.

Your thoughts and ideas are welcome and encouraged.

What do you think about this idea?

Would you want the stickers to be from the vet, pet store, or already printed prominently on the foods themselves?

This would be great. Maybe the FDA could get involved. Putting a picture on the label would help reduce many pet poisonings. How's this?? LOL

That is a great idea. Just yesterday I was talking about dangerous foods to my mom when we were trying to figure out whether something was good or bad. I think it would be great if foods that are know to be bad for pets had something printed on the label so that everyone would know they were bad.

This is a great idea! So many people are not aware of what foods are dangerous to their dogs. I think in addition to offering the stickers at vet offices, etc, on the back of the sheet of stickers could be a list of common household food items that are toxic (chocolate, onions, apple seeds, etc) and a link to the ASPCA's list of toxic foods. :)
