Is Preen Safe for Pets?

Preen is a brand of herbicides used for controlling both weeds and insects in gardens and lawns, but is it safe for our pets?

Preen Safety

The majority of home herbicides and pesticides contain the ingredient triclopyr, an EPA-registered product. Triclopyr is responsible for the herbicidal and insecticidal actions of Preen. When used as recommended by the manufacturer, Preen is considered to be a relatively safe product.

Propper Usage

To protect your pet and garden, it is important to use Preen safely and as directed. Here are some tips:

  • Apply Preen in an area your pet won’t access, such as a garden bed or flower bed.
  • Always read the Preen label directions before you use it.
  • Do not let your pet drink water from areas you have treated with Preen.
  • Allow the treated area to dry completely before you allow your pet to access it.

It is also important to contact a veterinarian immediately if you think your pet has been exposed to Preen.


When used as directed, Preen is considered to be a relatively safe product and doesn’t pose a large risk to our pets. However, it is always important to exercise caution and to use the product correctly. If you suspect your pet has been exposed to Preen, contact a veterinarian immediately.
