Customer Question

Greetings,
I'm just trying to find out if the peppermint cuttings I'm using outside my pot bellied pigs kennel can be fatal if she gets a hold of them. I was told they would keep mosquitos away from her, her water bowl and pool.

Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years. I have done some research and I have looked over several lists and could not find anything specific. I did find the Eucalyptus is toxic to live stock and pets. This is a link for Plants that should not be around pigs: http://www.ansci.cornell.edu/plants/php/plants.phpaction=indiv&byname=common&keynum=1

I hope this information was helpful as it came out of Cornell school of Veterinary Medicine.
