Are lawn sprays safe for dogs?

Almost any chemical that is designed to kill one aspect of natural insecticides, pesticides, herbicides, etc. for lawns will be harmful to your health and that of your dog in the long term. Even many chemical fertilizers are also dangerous. The short answer is yes, lawn pesticides are toxic to pets, as are most herbicides.

A number of common lawn products used to care for lawns and gardens are considered harmful to pets. Lawn people say that as soon as it's dry, it's safe for your pet. The truth behind that statement is not to protect your dog. They recommend waiting until the treatment has dried to limit their own liability if your dog walks on the treated lawn and follows it to your garden, causing the death of its flowers or vegetables.
