STOP, never, never use fabric softener on your dog's coat. You will poison him slowly; it doesn't matter how much you have diluted it. The dog will lick his fur. Never, never use Pine-Sol, or any pine product on your rugs, or floors if you have cats. Pine is highly toxic to cats. Cats quickly absorb every chemical they come into contact with through their skin; once they have absorbed the chemical you cannot get it out even if they are smart enough not to lick it. They will, however, lick their paws. Dried Pine-Sol (which you can smell) is still on your floor, or rug. I will update this review with more caveats when I finish this book. These, however, stood out to me.
I promised more caveats after having read the entire book. Having finished this appalling excuse for a DIY help book for pets, I can only say throw the book on the fire, and join a posse to string up the author, whose advice probably already has poisoned innumerable pets. There is just too much advice everywhere about administering OTC medicines, herbs, and household chemicals to cats and dogs. Some of the things sound innocuous, because they are things that would not harm us, but will effectively kill your pet.
Here are a few examples: The idiot author says to put onion juice down to deter cats from playing in, or using an area. He says cats hate the smell and will avoid the area. The fact is that many cats will lick food with, or eat onion flavored anything. Onions cause an anemia in cats that if not treated promptly will cause death. If a cat steps on the onion juice treated carpet, he is still going to ingest it when he cleans his paws.Read more ›
