Is this product safe for pets?

Asked by: Jsmith225
Under "PRODUCT OVERVIEW" on right side of screen see "Info & Guides" and select "SDS" (Safety Data Sheet). On page 7 says Conclusion/Summary Skin: May cause skin irritation. Eyes: May cause eye irritation. Respiratory: May cause respiratory irritation. On page 9 says Emergency Overview: Keep out of reach of children. May cause eye irritation. To sum it all up, no, this product is not safe to use around pets. Even though this question was asked March 7, 2016, a response on March 8, 2016 said "Yes, the product is safe to use around pets." As an animal lover I wouldn't want your pet to be hurt by this fertilizer based on an erroneous answer given.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New lawn fertilizer. I have used Scott's Starter fertilizer with several type of rescue seeds over the years. I have always achieved better success using the starter fertilizer than without. The seeds germinate faster and it also provide stronger root systems. Do not start a new lawn without using Scotts Starter Fertilizer!

Scott's starter fertilizer got my sod off to a great start, within a week of placing the sod, it was very healthy, deep green, and growing quickly. I wouldn't consider investing the effort into a new lawn without using Scotts to ensure a great start.

So far so good has taken about 26 days for grass to start but weather has not been favorable for new grass. here in northern Illinois. I have always had success with Scotts products and did not expect any less with this one. We dry raked the soil and added new organic top soil at about 1.5 in thick then new grass seed with this Scotts starter and watered as needed until we had sporadic rain it has now taken off on its own.

Other than being dusty - making application difficult with any wind - product clumps terribly, requiring digging your hand in the spreader and breaking up material. Giving three stars because it does make a difference in the end, though stripping two due to the difficulty in using it.
