We have not experienced death with any animals. Pets are often attracted to these body butter products because they smell so good and are made with natural ingredients – including Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and Almond Oil. To avoid any problems, do not leave any of our products on a table or sink where a pet can reach up or jump up to grab them. Obviously, call your vet if you have concerns. All Indulge Pure OriginalsTM products are made for topical use, on the skin only.
