Thousands of poisonings are reported to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) each year. Many of those reports lack vital information, making it difficult to identify the cause of the problem. The National Pesticide Information Center strives to collect and document pesticide incidents in such a way that regulators can make informed decisions.
When used according to the label directions, pesticides used around the home or on pets should pose little risk. However, even careful use of a pesticide product can cause harm to a sensitive, ill, or injured animal.
