Letters To The Editor Week Of 6/13/2022

Pets, plants and poison
To the editor: Is there danger lurking in your own backyard? Possibly—if tulip or daffodil bulbs, sago palms, azaleas, or rhododendrons are growing there. These, along with many other common plants, can sicken or even kill dogs and cats if eaten.
Cocoa mulch and many fertilizers are also toxic. Poisonous mushrooms can pop up in lawns overnight. Rodent poisons are not only extremely cruel to rats and mice, they can also kill cats and dogs who consume them (or the bodies of animals who have been poisoned).
We can protect our animal companions this summer by removing these poisons from our yards and allowing dogs and cats outdoors only on a leash and harness or in a securely fenced area, under our constant supervision.
Signs of poisoning include vomiting and diarrhea, drooling, lack of appetite, lethargy or restlessness, pale gums, seizures, and collapse. If you suspect that your animal has been poisoned, call your veterinarian or the Pet Poison Helpline at 855-764-7661 immediately. For more ways to keep animals safe, visit www.PETA.org.
