  • Your Dog’s Dirty Secret: Bacteria in Pet Waste

    Colony of dangerous bacteria

    Your dog gives unconditional love, joy and comfort to your family. But when nature calls, your dog may leave something less appealing behind. When pet waste waste is not properly removed in a timely manner, it can threaten the health of your family. Did you know that your dog’s waste can carry a number of harmful bacteria? Working with a professional pooper scooper can help you get rid of your dog’s dirty secrets without creating more work for yourself:

    • Campylobacteriosis : Campylobacteriosis is a bacterial infection carried by dogs and cats that can cause diarrhea in humans. This infection is as common as it is unpleasant and, in rare cases, can cause long-term complications.
    • Cryptosporidium : Cryptosporidium is a parasite carried by dogs, cats, mice, and many other mammals. Symptoms include diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, and dehydration. This parasite can be fatal for people with weak immune systems.
    • Salmonellosis : Symptoms of Salmonellosis include fever, headache, vomiting, and diarrhea. Some people with Salmonellosis may develop Reiter’s syndrome, a complication which can lead to chronic arthritis.
    • Toxocariasis : Also known as roundworms, these are usually transmitted from dogs or cats to humans. Toxocariasis may cause a rash, fever, cough, and even vision loss.
    • Toxoplasmosis : Toxoplasmosis is a parasite carried by cats that can cause serious birth defects like developmental disability and blindness if a mother becomes infected during pregnancy. This parasite can also cause problems for people with weak immune systems. Symptoms include headache, muscle aches, and lymph node enlargement.

  • Responsible Pet Waste Removal Protects the Environment

    Family trekking

    In a perfect world, your pet’s waste would be harmless, odorless, and beneficial for your lawn and the environment. Unfortunately, the opposite is true. Pet waste is a pollutant; in fact, the Environmental Protection Agency lists pet waste in the same category as herbicides and insecticides. Why is it important to dispose of pet waste in a conscientious fashion? When left unattended, pet waste can:

    Pollute Nearby Water Sources

    Dog waste is a major cause of water pollution, posing a significant hazard to human health. According to the Environmental Protection Agency , pet waste is a significant cause of water body contamination in areas where there are high concentrations of dogs. When dog owners allow their dogs to poop on the street, the waste is flushed down the nearest gutter when it rains. Once in the gutter, the waste makes its way through a city’s sewer system and, eventually, into nearby creeks, streams, and rivers.

    Spread Harmful Bacteria and Parasites

    In addition to contaminating natural resources, pet waste can also contribute to diseases that animals pass to humans. When infected dog poop is deposited on your lawn, the eggs of certain parasites can linger in your soil for years. Anyone who comes into contact with that soil—be it through gardening, playing sports, or walking barefoot—runs the risk of coming into contact with those parasites. These parasites include Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Salmonella, hookworms, ringworms, and tapeworms. Infections from these bugs often cause fever, muscle aches, headache, vomiting, and diarrhea in humans. Children are most susceptible, since they often play in the dirt and are prone to putting things in their mouths or eyes.
