I find it interesting that many of the people advocating organic gardening in other threads, are the same ones saying that they put topical flea treatments on their pets which can cause liver damage.
Funny but with all the blood tests over the yrs none of our cats have had problems w/liver and our vet tracks the
results for yrs.
Have you seen the possible
side effects for everyday meds on tv? and yet most people never have problems.
You drink and yet Alcohol has proven
Increases risk of gouty arthritis
Increases the risk of cancer in the liver, pancreas, rectum, breast, mouth, pharynx, larynx and esophagus
Causes physical and behavioral abnormalities in the fetus
Raises blood pressure, blood lipids and the risk of stroke and heart disease in heavy drinkers.
Enlarges the kidneys, alters hormone functions, and increases the risk of kidney failure
Causes fatty liver, alcoholic hepatitis and cirrhosis
Increases the risk of protein-energy malnutrition,; low intakes of protein, calcium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin C, thiamine, vitamin B6 and riboflavin, and impaired absorption of calcium, phosphorus, vitamin D and zinc.

So as pet owners we take a calculated risk. by weighing the pros and cons carefully and yes the simple numbers say somewhere,somebodies pet willl have problems, thats life.
