DANGERS OF DOG POOP
Cleaning up after your dog can be a stinky job, but someone’s gotta do it.. Constant clean up is necessary for a healthy environment for you and your family.
IS DOG POOP DANGEROUS??
Love, food, and shelter were all things you actively agreed to providing for your new pet when you purchased or adopted them.
Sanitation and cleanup are also important facets of pet ownership that are critical to the health and well-being of your entirefamily.
Dog feces is as high as 3rd on the list of contributors to contaminated water. Cleaning up after your dog is one guarantee in the life of every pet owner. Left un-checked, your yard can quickly turn into a mine field of feces in a week or less. On average, dogs do a number two twice per day which adds up to about 14 piles of poo in just one week, per dog. Contrary to popular belief, dog feces is not fertilizer and does not provide any benefit to the soil.
SO WHATS IN IT?
Dog feces may contain parvovirus, whipworms, hookworms, roundworms, threadworms, campylobacteriosis, giardia, and coccidia. If left unattended, these parasites will contaminate the water, soil, and can even cause infection in both pets and humans (especially children). The microscopic Hookworm larvae can be passed to another pet or person directly through the skin or by accidental ingestion as can other bacteria.
WHICH PARASITES CAN HUMANS ACQUIRE?
Yes, humans are capable of contracting hookworms, tapeworms,thread worms and campylobacteriosis. This is the most significant reason to avoid allowing dogs (especially puppies) to like your face and mouth – affectionately known as “puppy kisses”. If a dog has recently eaten feces or attempted to groom their hind quarters and come into contact with this infectious material, there is a chance the parasites will be passed directly into your mouth.
Children are especially venerable to infection because they tend to enjoy playing in the dirt, where parasites such as hookworm larvae lay dormant waiting for a new host. Young children may also put dirty hands or toys in their mouth, further increasing the chance for infectious material consumption.
Pet feces can be catastrophic to the local water table, contaminating nearby ponds, lakes, rivers and drinking water. When feces is allowed to remain on the soil for long periods, rainstorms will begin to dilute and break apart the feces and slowly spread the bacteria on other contaminants into local water sources. If your yard happens to hold water for extended periods of time, the
problem may be amplified.
To avoid potential infection, dog feces should be removed immediately.
Last but not least very soon heavy fines will be imposed by governing bodies & if you don’t adhere to rules then bear the costs of owning a dog irresponsibly
