• The Importance of Picking up Pet Waste

    Besides making your yard more beautiful, picking up after your pet can make your yard a safer place to play. When your dog poops, anything that lines his or her GI tract is flushed out, too. In that tract can sometimes live worms, parasites and other bacteria that can then be spread across your yard if pet waste isn’t regularly removed. In addition to impacting your family’s health, these worms can continue to infest and re-infect your four-legged family member. Learn more about the importance of proper pet waste removal from a veterinarian in the video below.

  • All About Disinfecting Your Yard

    Backyard 0009

    Disinfecting your yard of the germs and bacteria found in pet waste makes it a safer place to play, relax and spend time with friends and family. If  pet waste is not properly removed, the soil can absorb the parasites, parasite eggs and contagious diseases left behind. Especially if you are moving into a home that once had pets, consider having a professional come and disinfect your yard to better protect your family’s health.

    • Prevent Infection: Disinfecting your yard prevents the spread of infectious diseases like canine parvovirus, staphylococcus, E. coli, panleukopenia, giardia and others. While only sunlight and time can eliminate all diseases and bacteria in soil, parvocidal disinfectant has been proven to kill parvovirus and is used professionally in animal kennels. 
    • Protect Your Family’s Health: Kids love to play outside, which can put them at greater risk for contracting parasitic infections found in pet waste. These infections can make children extremely sick if they put their hands in their mouths or rub their eyes after playing in the dirt. Adults are not exempt from risk either; coming into contact with the soil every time you pick up a Frisbee, for example, can also put you in contact with parasitic infections. Preventing the spread of these parasites is especially important for pregnant women because certain parasitic infections can harm unborn children.
    • Care For Your Pet:  In addition to protecting the two-legged members of your family, disinfecting your yard greatly reduces your pet’s risk of contracting worms and developing infections. To avoid the risk of re-infection, dog owners often have their yard disinfected if their dog has recently recovered from a contagious disease such as parvovirus.

  • Stop the Poo-lution: The Environmental Impact of Improper Pet Waste Disposal

    Park Sign

    Have you ever wondered why fines are so high for not picking up after your pet? In addition to its unpleasant sight and smell, pet waste can actually negatively impact the environment. Improper pet waste disposal can leave behind bacteria and pollutants that are harmful to the earth’s and people’s health. Learn more about the environmental cost of pet waste, and call Pet Butler today to do your part in stopping the poo-lution!

    • Environmental Damage: Improper waste disposal can be of major concern for aquatic habitats. When dog waste is submerged in water, it starts a chemical decaying process. This process dissolves oxygen in the water and releases ammonia in its place. In the summer, the low oxygen and high ammonia levels can kill fish living in affected waters. Toxins from uncontrolled pet waste on beaches combined with other pollutants have even shut down public beaches.
    • Water Contamination: While pet waste mainly affects natural and man-made streams, lakes, and rivers, it can pollute local water supplies if introduced into the storm drain system. As outlined by the Environmental Protection Agency, storm water drains are the worst possible place to dispose of for pet waste. When pet waste finds its way into the storm water basin, it will be carried to nearby water-receiving sources.  
    • Cumulative Effects: The waste generated from a single dog may not pose as serious an environmental impact as other substances, but considering the number of dogs in our communities, the cumulative impact of improper pet waste disposal certainly impacts the environment. According to The Humane Society of the United States , Americans own over 78 million dogs.
