9. Your Compost Pile

Composting offers an attractive alternative to buying commercial or organic fertilizers. But as Pet Poison Hotline reports, your compost bin or pile can be toxic to your dog. The reason why? “These piles of decomposing and decaying organic matter and molding food products have the potential to contain tremorgenic mycotoxins, which are toxic to both pets and wildlife.” Make sure your compost bin is secure or your compost pile is appropriately fenced off. And be sure you don’t compost any dairy or meat products.
