Weed Killers Reason to Avoid



            The past 25 years have seen a 740% increase in bladder cancer among dogs.  This disturbing FACT led veterinary specialists to commission a study on possible causes.  The study showed no connection to flea control products or various environmental toxins, but showed an absolute link to herbicides.  Both 2,4-D type herbicides (broadleaf weed killers) and herbicides of the type used in weed and feed products were shown to be definite cancer causers.  Although these types of products are still on the market and have been approved by the FDA, they are definitely not safe.  Scientific studies such as this provide proof.          

            Please do not use these or any other toxic chemicals in your landscape.  They are dangerous and unnecessary.
