Ask the Vet: “Is it safe to have an exterminator spray for bugs while my pets are in the house?”
Q&A with Dr Pauline Taylor, BVM&S MACVSc
DR. PAULINE SAYS:
I would not recommend exterminators spray while your pets are at home. I would advise you remove all pets from your house and keep them away for a few hours, overnight if possible & certainly for birds. Make sure you tell the exterminators in advance that you have pets at home as they may vary what chemicals they use in their spray.
