Domestic animals may be exposed to pesticides in a variety of ways. They may consume feed with residues present. These residues in or on feed are absorbed in the intestinal tract. Some of the residues are de-toxified and excreted in feces and urine. In the case of the chlorinated insecticides a portion of the residues are deposited in lipid tissues in the body. A second means of contamination is when animals are treated directly for control of pests with insecticides. If animals are present when spraying for pests is done in buildings or out in the open they may become contaminated by inhaling the spray material or having sprays come in contact with the skin. Another possible method of contamination is for animals to come in contact with surfaces which have been sprayed with chlorinated pesticides and absorb these residues through the skin.
