Re: Isis Sick Again..SHARON? got fertilizer info

So, tell me Ky...what have they said to you guys about your kiddos playing out there on that crap??? Maybe THAT is the tack you need to take...after all, this is bad for CHILDREN and PETS...if they haven't given you any warnings or precautions in regards to this, they would be endangering the health of your FAMILY all together! What if your kiddos wanted to lay in the grass?  This is ridiculous!

The idiots!  Must not have any dog people that are listening to you.

Just for now can/do you wash off her paws and face well before she comes back in the house? Can you do the walking in another area to minimize the chemicals? My dog with allergies does better if I do that for him. I would guess that she is hypersensitive to that crap and it really does a number to the poor girl.

I hope you can get some resolution soon and that Isis feels better.

Re: Isis Sick Again..SHARON? got fertilizer info

Well at least it sounds like you are getting to the bottom of it and I would just present the fact to JAG alond with a firm statement that you have both Children and Dogs.  You know that not all people all dog lovers, but if they deny the fact that you want it away because of your children as well and there are additional episodes then I would think they could have their butt in a real sling on that one.  Now be prepared for them to say that they mean contact via mouth and your response is to point out the warning for skin contact.  Good luck!

Re: Isis Sick Again..SHARON? got fertilizer info

Are people out of their minds!?  Why would they put that stuff down with all the precautious that the handler has to take and when it clearly states "keep out of reach from children & pets"!!  

So sorry to hear about all this.  I hope you get to the bottom of this soon and that Isis is feeling better the poor girl.  Hope your hubby is okay too!

So sorry to hear about your problems and then finding out about those chemicals.  How can they endanger children and pets with chemicals like that.  Sure hope JAG can do something about it.

I don't really know much about it, but I would imagine all fertilizer would be dangerous in it's original form until it breaks down.  I think theres supposed to be a period where everyone/everything needs to keep off the grass, but after that I would think it's safe?  Seems to me you should have been told all of this beforehand though, especially when you have kids and pets!

Re: Isis Sick Again..SHARON? got fertilizer info

There are Federal and State laws about using many of these products.  I would contact the DNR in whatever State you're in.  They should have a department that deals with pesticides, and rodenicides.  The lawn service we use is mandated to put plastic signs up in our yard if anything is applied that is a danger to people, pets, or wildlife.  The sign says don't walk in this area for a specified amount of days, and when to remove the plastic signs.

We requested that an area off the back deck, about 12' by 14' never be treated with anything.
During these days we use the very short tie-out.  We had some idiot neighbor putting Tomcat rat and mouse packets on our back stump.  The DNR knew everthing about the product, and wanted to come and do an investigation.  They take this stuff seriously.  Give them H.

I 100% agree Sully!
I would think it's common knowledge this stuff is not good for people or pets. But since your not the one putting it down they should have been proactive and told you of the dangers.
You know how slow the military is, I mean it is the military.
Shoot "Hurry up and wait" is there motto.
I sure hope Isis gets better soon. Speedy recoveries going out to Isis from the BoxerBoys!

Awww ky, this is really frustrating. Poor Isis and poor you, I'd be worried sick. Just wondering, from a civilian standpoint can anything be done to help....someone I could write and gripe to??? After all if you want to get technical, a civilian contractor is being paid with military funds and that's MY tax dollars being used to endanger kids and pets :evil: So far it sounds like nobody wants to take accountability for this and that in itself makes me furious. If there is anything you  can think of that I can help with please don't hesitate to say so  :D
btw, how's hubbys hand?? Sending healing thoughts to you all.
