Keep Your Pet Safe from Poisons by Labavenger

Keep your pets safe from poisons !

A few weeks ago was the National Pet Poison Prevention Week, and it would be great for everybody who owns a loving pet to know which items can be harmful to your best friend. 
So be sure to keep this list nearby and contact a vet you trust immediately if your pet gets in contact with any of these poisons: 

a) Keep perfumes, make up and lady purses away from pets. Even if you don´t think purses are dangerous, well think again. The stuff inside a purse can make a dog or cat seriously ill. 

b) Don´t let your pets have access to cigarette buds and ash trays. Nicotine is highly toxic to animals. 

c) Every single car, cleaning and gardening  product, pesticides, detergents, and  sprays can also be very harmful to your pets.Keep those products high up and in a locked up drawer or shelf out of the reach of your pets. 

d) Medications must be kept high up and in a locked drawer or shelf as well.

e) Finally keep your pets away from chocolates, antifreeze, raisins, ice cream and mushrooms. Keep all trask bins properly lid. 

For a more extensive list of pet poisons please visit this link 
If you have any doubts and are not sure if an item is toxic for your pet, the best you can do is keep it high up, locked in a drawer  and out of your dog or cat´s reach.
Call a vet you trust immediately if your pet got in contact with any poisons.

Japanese Farmer, Only Hope For Fukushima Animals by Labavenger



If you think the world we live in is full of corruption, lies, and evil persons, then you are not alone. I´ve lost faith in humanity as well.

But from time to time comes along somebody so magnificent that makes you sleep better at night. 

Yep, the superhero I´m writing about is a Japanese farmer that goes by the name of Naoto Matsumara. He does not have the ability to fly or throw laser beams through his eyes, but boy oh boy has he the power to heal animal broken hearts ! Yes this farmer is the only person who refused to leave the Town of Tomioka just 10 miles from the Fukushima plant. 

For a year this man has taken care by himself  of all the abandoned cows, pigs, cats, dogs, etc. What he has found during this time is heartbreaking, animals left to starve dying slow deaths, waiting for an owner that is not coming back. 

But this man is greater that Thor and Green Lantern combined. He lives in a town with no running water and according to Japanese authorities his body is ¨completely contamited¨ which only means one thing: death sentence for this awesome Japanese farmer. 

But Matsumara shows no signs of backing off on his efforts. He leaves the town only to buy food for the innocent animals left behind and comes back just as quick to keep looking after them .

If you think there are no heroes in this world, think again ! If you have a few Dollars to spare and don´ t  know which cause to donate to, then please support : Guardians of Fukushima's Animals  Even if you can´t donate please take a little time to share this article on Twitter or any other social media sites. Maybe somebody else out there can donate to help this man feed those innocent animals.
