And there's the rub--we are on 2 acres and have used DeCon liberally in the past. I was always cautious--stashing it in rafters, under work benches. Well, just before Christmas our 5 month old American Water Spaniel had a "near death experience" with the stuff. We still are not sure where she mixed it up--and I am supicious that it was consumption of a dead carcass. Fortunately, there is a positive test for the stuff, so we eventually figured out what was going on. But the experience left us a lot more suspicious of the stuff (and about $1500. poorer)--now we are a DeCon-free zone. And we are considering a couple of barn cats for a new control system. We were always under the impression that once digested by initial contact, nothing happened in subsequent consumptions. I do not know. Just our wake-up call.
