Here Are 7 Household Products That Can Cause Cancer In Dogs

5 Signs Your Dog Needs a Probiotic

There are hidden dangers for dogs in many places, and you need to keep an eye out for them. Here are 7 household products that hold cancerous toxins for dogs.

Garden Bait and Garden Spray

Insecticides, herbicides, and other garden products can be ingested by dogs, and the chemicals inside can be dangerous.

Mothballs

This product unfortunately looks very edible, and it is well known for being toxic. They use insecticide as a main ingredient, after all. Fumes can also be carcinogenic.

Driveway Sealant

Sure, coal tar protects your driveway from rain, moisture, and holes – but they have polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in them that can lead to genetic mutation and even cancer in dogs.

Food Containers

Unfortunately, many plastic containers – including food and water bowls – contain Bisphenol A, also known as BPA. BPA is harmful for virtually everyone involved, including you. Some pet owners also don’t clean these containers often enough.

Air Fresheners and Other Fragrances

It’s tempting to make your house smell incredible through the use of fragrances, but many fragrances release components that are known for their carcinogenic properties.

De-Icing Salts

It’s easy to use these as the snow falls during winter, but dogs will usually try to lick these salts off the ground, or off their paws after walking through it. Large amounts can cause very severe effects.

Anti-Flea Products

Many flea-control products contain high levels of toxic chemicals, including many that can cause nervous system trouble in dogs.
