Warning! Poison to Dogs and Cats!
This article appeared in the July/August 2001 issue.
|Cocoa mulch, which is sold by Home
Depot, Foreman's Garden Supply and other garden supply stores,
contains a lethal ingredient called Theobromine. It is fatal to
dogs and cats.
It smells like chocolate and really attracts dogs, who then ingest this mulch and die. Several deaths have already occurred in the last two to three weeks.
A word of caution--check which mulch you are using in your garden and be watchful as to what your gardener is using in your garden.
