The Q&A Archives: Pet Friendly Weed killer and Preventer

Question: My cats are outdoor/indoor cats. I want to get rid of the weeds on my lawn, sidewalk, and driveway, but I don't want my cats to ingest any of the weed killer after I apply it. Is there a more natural weed killer that won't harm my cats?

Answer: There are a number of pet-friendly garden products on the market. The weed killers are vinegar based and one contains potassium salts and plant-derived fatty acids. You can also use a corn gluten based pre-emergent to keep weeds from popping up once you've removed the existing weeds. Most well stocked garden centers will carry these products. Be sure to read and apply as the label suggests. Best wishes with your garden!
