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!

There was a small area that I also seeded but ran out of the starter fertilizer and I was amazed at the difference the fertilizer made. The fertilized area grew twice as fast and was much denser.
