    Is lime bad for animals?

    My park is redoing the whole sewer system, therefore they are sprinkling lime powder stuff all over the ground.
    Can this be poisonous to dogs & cats?

    I'm no expert, but I don't think lime is poisonous to dogs and cats. It comes from crushed limestone which is in the enviornment already. I use it on my lawn and where Magic potties outside and she has never had an adverse affect to it.

    I was thinking of that too, but since this is is used for sewage spills, etc.. I'm wondering if there is some other chemicals added or what.
    I asked the construction guys & they have no idea whats in it or if its bad for people & pets.
    They did say that the people spreading it should wear ventilation masks, gloves etc... & are supposed to strip all their clothes & shoes after handling it. BUT they were not doing any of that, they were spreading it with cups with their bare hands, not wearing any masks or anything.

    Oh a friend told me that often Lime is sprinkled over a dead body(not human unless mafia) to hasten decomposition.

    This is really worrying me.

    The sewage system is so bad that there is talk that our trailer park will be shut down & we will all be forced to move. I scumlord has been lying about it being fixed for 3 years.

    I would think anything to do with dead bodies and sewage would be, more or less, poisonous!

    The reason they wear masks is because any intense and immense amount of dust and grim taken in through your nose and into your lungs can cause many problems. Something as hard and materialistic as lime, can most likely be sure to cause problems if your animals lives and breathes it everyday for a long time, maybe just try and keep your dog away from it, don't let him sniff it too heavily, and I know that my mom's ex-fiance used to use it to help decompose the waste from his dogs (all 7, lol) But i know it made them sneeze alot and I woulnd't do the same......just commmenting,
    thanks
