blood meal is attracting my dog
Have any of you who have a dog used blood meal in your garden? Well, wished I had googled 'blood meal and dogs' BEFORE I sprinkled some around the new flower bed I made, trying to discourage the rabbits from nipping off the leaves of my strawberry plants! Now that I did, I've discovered my dog is attracted to it - never occurred to me, but makes sense NOW. And now I'm reading that it is toxic to them, and can cause diarrhea, vomiting, etc. :(
I'm thinking if I hose down the bed it will cut down the smell. I'm not sure what else I can do. I did put up a wire fence around the area before I put down the blood meal, but she can stick her head through, and could probably slip through the openings. May have to wrap something else around it for a day or two.
