Walking my dog earlier, the park we usually go to had signs up saying 'crop spraying in progress'
There were two men spraying the field and with them was this little spaniel, the poor thing was running all though the long grass and you could see he was sopping wet with the spray!!!
Now these men were all in protective clothing, masks the lot !! and the poor little dog was being exposed .
I asked one of them if it was safe for the dog he said 'yes, it just turns them BLUE!!! there is dye in the spray !!!
I wouldn,t be happy walking my dog though it would you??

OMG Hunnybunny,no way would I let my dog/cat in pesticide,poor pup:sad:
Here in Ontario,Canada,pestcide for weeds,bugs etc...is no more allowed,so needless to say,the weeds are taking over,but it's better to have healthy kids and animals,than no weeds.

I am still yet to understand why we spray our food with dangerous inedible petroleum based chemicals, unfortunately the little dog will pay the price with its health in the future...

This park i go to is a childrens playpark too!!!

I just stayed on the path, but when this little dog ran up to us, you could see his fur had turned blue!!! so god knows what it does if you inhale it:eek: but these guys were all protected with masks etc but the poor dog wasn,t and apparantly they took hours to do the field.
I just can,t beleive the man who owned the dog would even think to bring it with him, knowing he was using chemicals unbeleivable!!!

I have to say that these guys are pulling the wool over your eyes. Think about it. One, these guys are all in protective gear. This says that it is harmful to the body in one way or another. Second, if it is dying the dogs fur, the chemicals that are dying the dogs fur can and more so then not seep through the skin. Which can cause harm to the inside of the body.

People like that make me really appreciate our four legged buddies - they'd never put their friends at risk...sigh.

Here in Ontario,Canada,pestcide for weeds,bugs etc...is no more allowed,so needless to say,the weeds are taking over,but it's better to have healthy kids and animals,than no weeds.This statement concerns me because the ban is by no means outright. There are exceptions so use of some areas might still expose people and pets to pesticides.

The ban contains exceptions for public health and safety (including the protection of public works structures), golf courses, specialty turf, specified sports fields, arboriculture and to protect natural resources, if certain conditions are met. There are also exceptions for agriculture, forestry, research and scientific purposes, and uses of pesticides for structural exterminations (e.g., in and around homes to control insects) and uses of pesticides required by other legislation.taken from http://www.ene.gov.on.ca/en/land/pesticides/factsheet-pesticides.php

And here I thought this thread was going to be about the current craze for dyeing animals different colours. Sigh.
