If you have a dog, you probably also have several toys or training tools that your furry friend regularly plays with.
Unfortunately, those toys may be doing extreme harm to your pet.
In a recent study, researchers found that bisphenol-A (BPA) and phthalates – ingredients of hard plastics and vinyl – readily leach from bumper toys, which are used to train retrieving dogs.
The new study is one of the first to examine dog products as a potential source of exposure for pets.
Dr. Kimberly Wooten joins Dr. Mike to discuss the latest findings and offer safer alternatives for man’s best friend.
