This chemical is not safe for pets. My dog ingested this pepper chemical compound and began to foam at the mouth, lose control of its bowels, panting and heart racing, convoltions and uncontrolable shaking. I rushed the animal to the vet immediately. If it had not been for the medical attention of the Vet., my dog would have died.

Gardeners Edge Replies: We're very sorry this happened to your dog. We spoke with the manufacturer and this OMRI listed product worked as intended. It effectively repels dogs, cats, groundhogs, squirrels, skunks, and raccoons from treated areas for up to 30 days using oil of black pepper, piperine, and capsaicin. When properly used, the heat and compounds in the pellets will cause irritation to animals that touch or taste them. It should be kept out of the reach of pets and children.

I wanted an organic way to control the hungry beasties who eat my green beans and other sprouting garden plants. The Critter Ridder was so easy to apply. So far, since application, I have had no unwanted munching on my garden plants. Will buy this product again.
