I’ve heard many horror stories about how pets can get sprayed with bug spray, so I’m glad to hear that many of the products are safe and won’t spray on pets. The reason for this comes from the fact that the bug spray comes with instructions for use that are easy to follow. These are the things that I usually do: Apply a very thin layer of the spray to the bottom of the pet’s paws to dampen the skin.
After doing this, you can use the pet’s favorite toy to scratch its back or even put a big tick on its leg to remove it and bring it to the vet.
It’s important to note that this spray for pets contains parabens, a chemical that is often used to kill germs and bacteria on pets. These chemicals also cause other types of damage to pets’ skin and kidneys. As a result, some pet owners have started to use bug spray to keep their pets healthy, but some have been harmed by these chemicals.
If you’re petting a cat or a dog, a pet shop that specializes in cat or dog products should be able to help you find the safe and effective bug spray to use.
When I wrote about the dangers of using chemical sprays on pets, you may remember that I described the effects of the popular pet spray, Catnip. As the spray contains methyl isocyanate (a chemical that some pet owners mistakenly believe is just an insect killer), it can cause a chemical burn on your pet, as well as other long-term effects. It is absolutely not safe for pets to use.
In the case of the Catnip, it has a half life of only about 24 hours, which is why you should only use it on an adult cat. If you would use it on a kitten, you’d be making a huge mistake.
The same is true for all the other spray products also sold by PetSmart. The chemicals in the spray will be slowly absorbed into your pet’s body and make it harder for it to recover. One of the most common problems pet owners face is breathing problems, which is why we are encouraging pet owners to only use Catnip on adult cats.
A while back we came across a survey that asked pet owners what they thought was the most dangerous substance that cats could ingest. The biggest number of respondents was cats, followed by dogs, then cats and dogs (see image below). We think the worst part is that cats that eat pet food or a pet treat are most likely to end up ingesting catnip.
So you might think that cats and dogs might be safe, but as we all know, cats and dogs are really smart and can figure out how to get access to other things. The second most popular answer was pet food. This might seem a little random, but we think that cats and dogs are good at figuring out how to get food and how to get it to them. They know that if they let a toy fall on the floor, a cat will come along and pick it up.
Just because an animal has a hard time figuring out how to get food doesn’t mean it can’t figure out how to get food in the first place. A cat will find a way to eat a banana and a dog will find a way to eat a treat.
