  • Once it dries it should be fine... as long as your pets are not inclined to lick it up.

  • does it have a warning label for kids and pets. they have to list that to avoid being sued should someones pet die after they use this product. so i would try to find out. if they have no warning label and you use it anyway and your pets die. i'd sue for sure. even if your partly at fault although they have the bigger burden to provide their customers with the knowledge of hazards of using said product.
