POISON PREVENTION: PROTECT YOUR PETS

The animals that share our lives and homes rely on us for protection. Many common household products such as cleaners and pesticides could hurt a pet if not used and stored correctly.

Always read the label first before you buy, store and use household cleaners or pesticide products.

Keep pets away from products.
  • Don't spray or store cleaning or pesticide products near pet foods or water dishes.
  • Make sure animals can't get near bait products while they are in use.
  • In the event of a spill, be sure to keep animals out of the area until it is cleaned up.
  • Don't forget about wildlife. Spraying products on a windy day can carry the product into the water supply for wild animals.
  • Store all household cleaning products and pesticides where pets can't get at them.
