Every pet guardian should read this, but how about going all roganic & natural, instead of relying on all these chemicals & fertilizers? There's less of a risk for you, your pets, the wildlife, & the environment overall!

Chemicals are bad for domesticated animals as well as wild life. I don't use ANY chemicals in my yard, but I am guilty of using magnesium chloride on my driveway in the winter--out of necessity.

We do the same thing. But we'd never get out of our driveway if we didn't!

There is so much to watch for when it comes to keeping our pets safe and healthy. It is good to have frequent reminders. I know I always have to be careful to think about what I am planting and what I am using on the grass - especially the fenced in area where my dogs are allowed to run.

Yes - she is not allowed in if there is too much chlorine or if I have to add anything else to keep it clean until it is at a safe level.

This is something I always have to be aware of in my fenced backyard cause running loose in the backyard my dog Skitters could get into anything in fact one time she did get into something and got really sick we had to give her a liquid diet for 72 hours and then feed her a special diet of food made from oatmeal and eggs until she was better. Also Skitters loves to be a berry picker she goes out every spring and summer and eats the raspberries right off the bush in the backyard she will do the same thing with blue berries and black berries. We have a holly tree in the backyard and luckily Skitters has never eaten off of it.
