Animal Poison Control Center Warns Pet Owners About the Dangers of Summer Pesticides

Statistics compiled by the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center confirm that July and August are the most dangerous time of year for companion animals. According to 2001 data, the Center received approximately 7,000 calls in July, making it the month with the highest volume of cases for the year. The data found that over 3,000 (48%) of the cases involved animals being exposed to pesticides. This includes commonly used insecticides (flea and tick products), rodenticides (mouse and rat baits) and herbicides (weed killers).


Pesticides are poisons designed to kill. During World War II, Gerhardt Schrader discovered the first organophosphate pesticide, parathion, while developing nerve gases for Nazi gas chambers. Although parathion is non-persistent and biodegradable in water, a few drops applied to the skin can kill a human in seconds.

Saddam Hussein's chemical warfare featured the organophosphate pesticide Sarin.

When Puppies Die

On November 6, 2000, Kelley surfed into our site to read our story about the tragic death of our beloved horse. We live next to a golf course that was being redeveloped at the time of his death.

Kelley had lost her beloved horse, Lucky, and was desperately seeking some answers. The first golf course was under construction where she lives on the island of Cozumel, Mexico. The horse ranch where Lucky and other horses were stabled was in the center of the proposed golf course. Plans were being made to move the horses to a new location in December.

Animal cruelty is not a harmless venting of emotion in a healthy individual; this is a warning sign that this individual is not mentally healthy and needs some sort of intervention.

Ball FACT: Animal abuse is now recognized as a sign of mental disorder.
Ball FACT: 70% of those who have been convicted of abusing animals have also been convicted of violent or anti-social crimes against people.

Pyrethroid syndrome in an animal keeper

Pyrethroids are used as insecticides all over the world. For many years, there has been controversy over the toxic and allergic effects of the compounds, especially in connection with the socalled pyrethroid syndrome.

We here report the case of a 45yearold female animal keeper who was exposed to pyrethroid insecticides over a period of 13 years at her workplace in activities such as feeding, maintenance of hygienic conditions, and application of insecticides.

Clinical history revealed mainly neurologic and allergylike symptoms which developed in a progressive manner, as well as pain syndrome in muscles and joints. These symptoms had been apparent for about 5 years. Furthermore, the patient suffered from abnormalities of the vegetative neural behavior (e.g., loss of strength and performance, abnormal tiredness, loss of interest, sensation of coldness, dysphoria, heart arrhythmia, rapid pulse, malfunction of memory and concentration, nausea, headache, decreased olfactory sensitivity, and low blood pressure, hair loss, hypothyreosis, and vitiligo.
