Let’s face it; Pet Waste is a stinky topic! Many pet owners hate even thinking about doing it. Every dog poops, but not every pet owner cleans up after their dog. Here are a few reasons why pet waste removal is not just about stinky poop, it is apart of being a responsible pet owner.
Common diseases are transmitted to dogs, cats, and people through pet waste. These diseases include giardia, roundworms, salmonella, and E-coli. Doga can spread parvovirus and coronavirus through infected pet waste, which can cause severe illness and even death!. By picking up after your dog whether it be in your yard or when on a walk helps control the spread of disease.
Keep Your Yard Clean Usable
When out playing in the yard, it is all fun and games until someone steps in dog poop! Picking up the poop will keep your yard clean for activities for you, your children, and your pets.
Keeping the Flies Away
Flies love pet waste. The eat it and lay eggs in it. After landing on feces in your yard, the flies then come into your home and land on your counters, food, and other surfaces. The only way to prevent the cycle is to keep your yard free of feces.
Responsible Pet Ownership
Being a responsible pet owner includes more than proper diet & veterinary care. It also includes making sure you clean up after your pet. Pet waste in your yard may not bother you, but it can harm aquatic life in local waterways by encouraging algae growth in the water which restricts oxygen to fish and other aquatic species.
