Good morning!

I had no clue about what to say regarding this topic, so I did a quick google search and came up with a bazillion links...the first one warned against using cooca mulch! Said it is extremely dangerous to pets, smells like chocolate and attracts them.

Then I read a site that listed the major ingredients to be aware of, but mostly they are in pesticides but it had good info:

"1. How can I tell which pet products contain dangerous chemicals?

Check the product label's Active Ingredients list. If a product contains any of the seven common organophosphates, don't buy it. The seven organophosphates are chlorpyrifos, dichlorvos, phosmet, naled, tetrachlorvinphos, diazinon and malathion. Also avoid products containing carbamates. The two chemical names to watch out for and avoid are carbaryl and propoxur. Again, check the listing of Active Ingredients."

Then this was about fertilizer:

"The most serious problems resulting from fertilizer ingestion in pets are usually due to the presence of heavy metals such as iron. Ingestion of large amounts of fertilizer could cause severe gastric upset and possibly gastrointestinal obstruction."

And, finally, here is a good link to poisons and pets:

And this was just the first page of the google search! :wink: Hope it helps!
