In Partnership with Green Gobbler
Having problems with weeds in your yard but scared the chemicals in most products will hurt your dog? As a pet owner, it can be difficult to find a pet-friendly, natural solution to help reclaim your yard and protect your garden. The ingredients usually found in the heavy-duty weed killers are harmful to the environment, your pet, and your family.
Glyphosate is a hazardous chemical found in most of the common weed killers available for purchase. This chemical has been proven to be a potentially cancer-causing substance and can be detrimental to the health of humans and animals in the long-term. In the short term, glyphosate can cause headaches, drowsiness, nausea, and other gastrointestinal problems. But glyphosate isn’t the only dangerous chemical found in common weed killers!
Other common chemicals include phosphates, sulfates, petroleum solvents, and chlorine. These chemicals can cause a variety of health issues to both humans and animals and are quite dangerous for the environment.
That’s why Green Gobbler is such a great choice because it is vinegar-based. Vinegar can be a great natural solution to avoid using any harsh chemicals! Green Gobbler’s 20% Vinegar Weed Killer has been certified by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for organic use and it is naturally derived from corn. Their formula is four times stronger and more effective than regular household vinegar (which contains 5% vinegar concentration) and will kill weeds within 24 hours of application.
This Green Gobbler formula is non-selective and can kill dandelions, crabgrass, and other annual and perennial weeds that may be causing problems in your yard or for your pet. Morning glory plants can be poisonous for both dogs and cats if ingested in large amounts and the bindweed variety is known as a noxious perennial weed that can also be harmful to your garden.
It is safe to use around your pets and family. A perfect way to ensure your pets and other animals in your neighborhood can run free and play around in the grass without being exposed to dangerous chemical fumes and sprays!
