Our groomer told us to use it on our carpet and now our golden is itching like crazy. We found about 4 or so fleas on her that's why we used it on the carpet however she is itching 10x's worse now before her grooming. I did find out that DH used the WHOLE BOX of borax on 3 rooms and I've vaccum several times and I'm still picking it up out of the rug. I put our dog in the bath and just ran water on her incase she had any on her and I've vaccum a few more times. I feel so bad. Now I'm reading on line that it is and isn't toxic. Who can you believe? My vet isn't open right now and I'm worried.
