According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the U.S., the numbers of pesticide products that cause adverse reactions are growing.
The number of the reported products that caused these reactions has grown to a serious figure – 44,000 in 2008, while in 2007 they were 28,000. The rise of these cases speaks of the need for tighter restrictions when it comes for pesticides for pets.
The new restrictions will be included in these products in order to provide more safety for the pets. Spring is also the season when pet diseases are growing due to more outdoor activities and the need of applying pesticides.
The EPA warns the pet owners to read carefully the instructions before usage and also to follow the advice that is provided by the agency concerning the matter. The adverse reactions are often caused by products, which comes in tubes.
When they are applied on pet’s body they cause allergic reaction. The symptoms are skin irritation, redness, vomiting, diarrhea and others. The most dangerous are those products that affect the nervous system of your pet. They might actually cause seizures and trembling.
Make sure you are choosing only products that are included in EPAs list for safety products and read well the instructions before applying the pesticides.
