CHEM­I­CAL CON­CERN: BPA

Natural Solutions - - Pets -

Bisphe­nol A, or BPA, is a com­pound of­ten found in plas­tics—such as the dishes our furry friends drink from or the toys they play with. Limit their ex­po­sure by:

Choos­ing prod­ucts la­beled BPA-free

• Us­ing con­tain­ers made from al­ter­na­tive ma­te­ri­als, such as porce­lain or stain­less steel

• Re­duc­ing use of canned foods, be­cause many are lined with BPA-con­tain­ing resin Try toss­ing fruits and veg­gies into a food pro­ces­sor to cre­ate a thick pulp that can then be dried and turned into home­made treats. Make sure to re­move all seeds and pits, and wash pro­duce thor­oughly. Steam or boil cru­cif­er­ous veg­eta­bles first, which may cause up­set stom­ach when eaten raw.
