Our dogs and cats are being exposed to these chemicals just by being in the same house with you, they have no way to avoid exposure. Dogs as you may know,  have about 220 million scent receptors (compared to our 5 million). Dogs can smell things that seem unfathomable to us. They can detect some odors in parts...

Synthetic Fragrance – The Most Overlooked Toxic Chemical

By Dr. Jeannie Thomason The most overlooked toxic chemical used on a daily basis in our homes are products that contain synthetic “fragrances” It’s time to turn up your nose at any products that “smell”!   Synthetic Fragrances are the most overlooked toxic chemical in our daily lives.  While many of us have been taught to read labels on everything we want to buy and use in our home, around our pets and family, the sad truth about synthetic fragrances is that manufacturers are not required to list their fragrance ingredients on product labels.   IF they do list...

Toxic Chemicals/Hormone Disruptors In Household Products

As breeders and especially NR breeders, we should be concerned about the many toxic chemicals/hormone disruptors lurking in our homes, kennels, catteries and grooming areas that are, what are called “Endocrine Disruptors”.  Hormone or endocrine disruptors are in everything from household cleaning products (laundry soap, toilet cleaners, etc.), synthetic fragrances, personal care products (shampoo, deodorant, perfume, etc.), food packaging and even pet foods!

Toxic Dangers of Lawn & Garden Chemicals

I often share and educate about the dangers of chemicals in products we use every day, from laundry soap to air fresheners. But how many us really stop to realize that a lush green lawn, might also be toxic to us and especially our dogs? As “natural rearing breeders” we may be feeding our dogs a species specific raw diet and not vaccinating; we may have stopped using toxic chemical cleaning products in our home but what about our yards and gardens?   Lawns are beautiful and they even have some wonderful benefits: Lawns absorb water, which helps reduce storm runoff and improve...
