Dorsetdog - pet friendly slug pellets

Most people take their pets to visit friends and family. Often those being visited do not have pets and do not consider pet health when buying their preferred slug killer pellets, to protect their plants and veg.

A number of slug pellet manufacturers still use Metaldehyde and other chemicals that are allegedly harmful to pets and wildlife. These include the most readily available products made by Bayer, Doff, etc. However, Bayer and Doff both manufacture slug pellets made from ferric phosphate (a form of iron), considered by some as a more natural chemical or a more natural form of control. It should be noted that iron, if eaten in quantity by dogs, for example, can be fatal. Slug pubs, copper tape and crushed shells etc are also available and considered by some to be a more natural/softer form of control.
