Thanks Cal, noted.
I try to pay close attention to all that might affect them, even spent the money I couldn't afford to in order to buy a steam cleaner for all my floors and carpet.
Unfortunately for them, there best friend really isn't, and I hate it, but I smoke! I worry more about the effect it has on them than me!

brilliant article Cal.. I will pass this on to my friends imediately. Dogs are so susceptible, as they always seem to love to chew and ingest grass. I always use only green cleaners in the house, but to be honest, it was more for the protection of my family. I now realize I should have been more aware that household cleaners could have harmed my pets. as well.

thanks Cal, really useful information, I use an all natural orange floor cleaner for the canine child that I have at home - does make him sneeze but at least it's not poison.

Thanks for the article! I don't use poisons or harsh chemicals either in or out of the house. I have cats, and they're a lot lower to the ground than I am! I use a biodegradable, unscented cleaner for my floors, then go over them again to "rinse" the stuff. Seems to work, the cats don't sneeze. Have to say they don't like the wet feetsies, though, but of course they MUST walk through where I've just cleaned!
