  • KEEP PETS SAFE WHEN PESTICIDES ARE SPRAYED/COCKER SPANIEL SUCCESS STORY
    From ASPCA
    Aug. 21, 2003

    Welcome to ASPCA News Alert, a weekly e-mail newsletter from The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

    KEEP YOUR COMPANION ANIMALS SAFE DURING MOSQUITO SPRAYING FOR WEST NILE VIRUS

    As more cases of illnesses associated with the West Nile virus are diagnosed in humans and equines, communities have begun to step up their control programs with the spray application of pesticides. To limit your pet's exposure to these chemicals when your area is being sprayed, the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) offer the following tips:

    • Know when pesticides will be sprayed in your community, so you'll be able to keep pets indoors during these times. Note that elderly or debilitated animals--particularly those with heart disease or asthma--may be more sensitive to airborne pesticides and chemicals.
    • Close windows and turn off window-unit air conditioners while spraying is taking place.
    • Bring pet dishes and toys inside. If any items have been accidentally exposed to the spray, wash them well with soap and water.
    • Keep horses in their stalls or in a lean-to, and be sure to cover water troughs and buckets.
    • If you have an outdoor fishpond, be sure to cover it when your community is being sprayed. Your piscine pets can be very sensitive to certain pesticides. If you suspect that your pet is experiencing difficulties as a result of exposure to pesticides, contact your veterinarian immediately.

    For more information about West Nile virus, visit the AVMA's website

    Tips on pet poison prevention can be found at APCC online .

    If you'd like to help us even more, you can find out how to become a member of the ASPCAor contribute to our special funds.
