Building materials may be purchased treated or untreated, depending on your preference.  Old treated materials used arsenic and were very dangerous for usage for pets, but new processes are safe.  Please read below from Home Depot's web site:

SAFETY ALERT: Working with Pressure-Treated Lumber Copper-base compounds have replaced formulations containing arsenic for lumber treatment. Until December 2003, the primary pressure treatment for wood used chromated copper arsenic (CCA) as its preservative. The new alkaline copper quaternary (ACQ) or copper azole treatments are safe for people, animals, and plants when used as recommended.
