As a rule of thumb, anything that you would not want to drink or eat is probably not good for your pet. Animals usually weigh a lot less, so a much smaller amount of poison could become a problem. In addition to the obvious such as cleaning supplies, insecticides, garden chemicals, paints, and medicines, even some plant leaves can prove dangerous. When possible, your pet should only eat or drink products labeled for their specific dietary needs. If in doubt, do not allow your pet to eat or drink anything without further research, or approval by your vet!
