    Is Borox toxic to dogs and cats?

        Borax is a white powder used along baseboards to control fleas, ants, and roaches.  If a dog or cat comes into contact with it, it can cause skin and respiratory irritation.  If they eat it, it will cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, and if they've eaten a lot of it, kidney failure.    However, I've had numerous dogs and cats, never had a problem with them getting into it.  The small amounts used along baseboards is not enough to make them sick, and they've never shown any interest in smelling or eating it.
