Toxic Pet Toys. Are there alternatives?

We all love to buy toys for our furry friends, but have you stopped to take a look at where it is made, or what sort of materials it is made from?  More than 80% of all toys are made in China. In the past decade, toys made in China, have repeatedly been shown to be toxic. Many of these toxins, can be quite harmful to your pet if they are chewing on it, or happen to digest it.

Research has been conducted on both cat and dog toys selected at random, from dollar stores, to grocery stores, to pet shops.  The results are shocking.  The substances they tested positive for – lead, antimony, arsenic, cadmium, chromium and mercury – can seriously damage the nervous system, and can enter the body through breathing, the skin and contaminated food. These toxic toys not only poison pets when chewed or touched, but can enter the body through the air they breathe.

It seems as though there should be some sort of regulation or standards that are enforced to protect our pets, however, that is not the case. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) checks the safety of all toys intended for humans. Maximum levels of certain toxins are enforced when it comes to children’s toys. Unfortunately, there are no organizations regularly testing animal toys, and there are no federal standards regarding pet toys.

There are conflicting opinions regarding the severity of these levels of lead and other heavy metals in pet products. Because of the lack of federal regulation at this time, it is up to you, the pet owner, to determine your level of concern.  However, there are safe alternatives.

At Eco Dogs and Cats, we carry a wide variety of safe, environmentally friendly and non-toxic toys for both cats and dogs.
