Dog Poop Isn’t a Fertilizer
We put cow manure on our crops to help them grow, so the dog poop can do the same for grass and flowers. Unfortunately, this is a common misconception about dog waste, and the reason lies in the animals’ diets: Cows are herbivores, whereas dogs are omnivores. Because dog’s diets are very high in protein, their waste is highly acidic, contains pathogens and microbes, and leaves excess nutrients in places like our lakes and rivers. Dog waste also contains nitrogen, This is one of the reasons why your grass turns brown or yellow in spots.
Disease Causing Bacteria and Parasites – Harmful For Humans And Dogs
Nitrogen isn’t the only thing that dog poop has a lot of. Dog poop is even more full of disease-causing bacteria and parasites than other types of waste. These bacteria and parasites are harmful to humans and spread the disease to other dogs. Dog waste is full of E. coli, salmonella. It is a common carrier of the following: Worms, Parvovirus, Coronavirus, Giardiasis, Salmonellosis, Cryptosporidiosis, and Campylobacteriosis. These bacteria and parasites can actually linger in the soil for years. If you don’t clean up after your dog, you are putting other people and other dogs at risk of getting sick.
So It is very important for us to clean up dog poop, when you walk with your dogs, Please always carry a dog waste bag. This ensures you are always ready to remove your dog’s poop and there are no surprises that you can’t clean up.
