When shopping for pet toys, there are no added health benefits when choosing organic vs. conventional cotton toys. But there is comfort in knowing that no harmful herbicides, fertilizers or pesticides were used to grow the cotton when you do choose organic. One thing to avoid is toys made with polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which can be harmful to pets if they tear apart the toys and accidentally ingest small pieces. Look for natural rubber or recycled plastic "indestructible" toys.
