That within itself should tell you something.
Read up on the Wikipedia entry here
and the hazard data here
Your mom is poisoning the dogs, herself, you and anyone else who comes into contact beside them.
Make her see sense, for all your sakes.
No doubt your not feeling in good health. Wash it off the dog and tell your mom to stop using it. There are safe and exceedingly reliable products on the market like Frontline and K9Advantix that can be used to hang on to you dog flea free.
I cant imagine using this on a small dog. Your going to be very lucky if the dog doesn't develop some sympathetic of kidney or liver problem or even develop seizures!
It's poison, your slowly poisoning your dog and you too!
All the problems could terrifically well be caused by the sevin dust. Call poison control and find out. Ask about the dogs too. Sevin dust is not intended to treat dogs for fleas, etc. Is your mom senile or something? Wash that stuff sour of the mutts immediately and hide all the sevin dust from the looney woman!
I have looked up the sign online, and see that it currently says NOT to use the product on any live animal. As a flea killer, it is meant to be mixed within water and sprayed on the dogs sleeping area or bedding, and the animal (and people) are not to be back surrounded by the area until the area is dry.
I personally wouldn't want to be petting or holding a dog that it's used on day after day. It is a poison after all.. used to kill ants, fleas etc. You will probably have more luck calling your vet and asking him to explain to your mom that she shouldn't use it on the dogs.
See the first connection below for the label.
You can find many sites where associates extoll the virtues of Sevin as a flea powder.. but the label says No.
Never hear of "seven dust" what is it?
