Toxic Chemicals And Dogs – Deadly Canine Cancer Connection

We have been talking a lot about the dangers of toxic chemical use around, on and in our canine companions.

Lush Lawn or Thriving Dog?

By Dr. Jeannie Thomason  Lush Lawn or Thriving Dog – Do We Have A Choice? Several years ago, a study was conducted over a 6 year period at the Foster Hospital for Small Animals at Tufts University’s Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, regarding the dogs and their exposure to lawn pesticides, specifically those applied by professional lawn care companies.
