I have an 8-month lab and want to use 16-16-16 pelletized fertilizer on five fruit trees. Will this harm my pet?
Is Pelletized 16-16-16 Safe for Pets
Certified GKH Gardening Expert
Pelletized fertilizer is really only considered pet safe if you follow certain precautions such as being sure to give your grass a good long watering to allow the fertilizer to sink into the soil. Most websites advise waiting 24-48 hours after fertilizer application before allowing your pet back onto the lawn. I would recommend reading the instructions that came with your fertilizer for more specific information on how to safeguard your pets.
