Please, please, please spread the word!
I work in traditional media, as do many of my friends. Unfortunately, artist’s materials are notoriously hazardous, occasionally even life-threatening, especially for pets. Please make sure that you read through this information compiled by the US Department of Health and Human Services so that you can work safely. (The information also applies for persons internationally, of course!) There is information for all sorts of traditional media, including crafts.
This might seem like a “boring” thing to do, but even if you just look up your own media, it can make a big difference in your health in the long-term. We may laugh about the “State of California” carcinogen warnings, but I promise not all of us will be laughing in the future.
Please help people know what they’re working with and how it might affect their health as well as those in their household! It also includes information on what to do if something goes wrong.
i think it’s a universal truth that everyone in our generation takes pluto’s losing its planetary status as a personal offense
pluto is smaller than russia. why did we ever even consider it a planet?
BECAUSE IT’S A PART OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM
OHANA MEANS FAMILY
OHANA MEANS NO ONE IS LEFT BEHIND
Your smaller than Russia. Why should we consider you a person.
I need feminism because “Who hired a stripper” shouldn’t be the first thing said to me when I walk into a welding job.
women in trades are treated like such fucking shit.
NO I’M STILL STUCK ON THIS WHY WOULD ANYONE SAY THIS TO A WOMAN HOLDING A BLOWTORCH
I once watched a little old lady calmly using a reciprocating saw while a customer hovered over her going “You don’t know how to USE that, do you? Seriously? Doesn’t HE do all that?” (referring to a male employee.)
To this day, I wish I’d stepped in and said…something…I don’t know what, I’m rarely clever on the spot, but if she’d taken his leg off and said “Whoops. Guess I don’t,” I would have testified before God that it was an accident and her arm slipped.
PLEASE PASS THIS ON!
I want to make sure every one knows about this and what it can do to your pets
this is what has happened to my sisters cat after she wore a hartz flea and tick collar and now has a burn like wound on her neck. please pass this on and do not buy hartz’s products! they use poison in their products pets have died because of this!!
Yes this is my cat she is doing fine at the moment but I’m so sorry for the people who’s pets are not so lucky
oh my god
PLEASE REBLOG THIS PEOPLE
Hartz is the worse EVER! my aunt used it and it ended up killing two of her cats. only one survived but she had the worse skin condition. NEVER USE HARTZ
BETTER REBLOG THISS!!!
Guys this is an actual issue. We had Hartz collars for my dog and he kept having seizures. one seizure he had on the stairs and fell backwards down the stairs, and he also stop breathing from these seizures. When I found out about Hartz causing this I took it off my dog and he hasn’t had a seizure since. And he used to have one at least every few months. DON’T USE HARTZ.
DONT USE FLEA COLLARS PERIOD
THEY ARE ALL AWFUL
As soon as I saw the image, before reading the text, I went “That looks like a burn from a Hartz product.”
Lo and behold. I fucking despise that brand and tell every fellow dog/cat owner about how awful they are.Also, vets can’t even tell you about how awful this product it because Hartz has sued veterinarians in the past for slander. I’ll repeat that. THEY PRESS LAWSUITS AGAINST VETS WHO WARN THEIR PATIENTS ABOUT THIS PRODUCT. Fuck Hartz.
why I literally glare at the Hartz section at pet stores every time I walk by
This happened to my childhood cat. I don’t remember if it was Hartz or some other brand but after just a short period wearing a flea collar all the fur on her neck fell out and it burned her skin. After we removed it the fur never grew back so she had to live for the last 9 or 10 years of her life with a bald neck.
Flea collars are really bad.
