Dog Doody Facts:

Dog doody left to accumulate can be dangerous to everyone’s health. Dogs walk through it, sniff it, roll around in it, and may even eat it, and then they run over and kiss you! These are some diseases that could affect your dog and you if the doody is left to accumulate, according to www.peteducation.com:

  • Canine parvovirus-A deadly virus that enters your pet orally. This virus causes extreme fluid loss and can lead to death.
  • Whipworms- These worms reside in the large intestine. Eggs are found within feces, and can live in moist soil for years.
  • Hookworms- These worms are blood suckers found in the intestines. Hookworms can be transmitted to humans.
  • Roundworms- These worms can affect your dog's breathing and digestion.

All of these can cause health risks.

Don’t risk the health of your pet!
