5 Important Reasons to Clean Up Pet Waste

Posted on April 8, 2017 at 10:40 AM

Dealing with pet waste is one of those topics that every pet owner must deal with but no one likes to talk about. The fact is that the majority of community and neighborhood pet problems result from the inappropriate handeling of pet waste. In addition, pet waste is the greatest source of potential health risk for your pet and your family. This article will highlight the five most important reasons to properly dispose of pet waste and will also give you some tips and products to make this chore easier.

#1. Disease Control

There are several very common diseases that can be transmitted to dogs, cats and people through feces. These include giardia, roundworms, salmonella, and Ecoli. In addition, your dog can spread or contract parvovirus or coronavirus through infected feces. Dog feces will damage and harbor unwanted harmful parasites, bacteria, and pest. Dog waste can Team up with other bacteria which can cause serious kidney disorders, intestinal illness, and diarrhea in humans. When humans or animals come into contact with the soil through every-day activities like walking barefoot, gardening, or playing, they risk infection from those eggs..... All of these diseases are very serious and common and EVERY effort should be made by pet owners to keep their pets and family away from potentially infected feces. "POOP" doesn't just wash away or "Disappear" If  your not disposing of your dogs waste, then you are putting yourself, your family, your dog, and YOUR WATER SUPPLY at risk!

Twenty years ago, the EPA classified pet waste as a dangerous pollutant.

The CDC confirms pet waste can spread parasites including Hookworms, Ringworms, Tapeworms,Roundworms, Salmonella, and Ecoli.

One of the easiest ways to do this task is to hire a Pet Waste Removal Company like The Poop Squad Pet Waste Removal & Pet Sitting Services. 

#2. Making your Yard more Useable

Nobody likes to walk through a yard that is hiding "doggie land mines" If you and your children are afraid to use your yard because of the dog, then you are wasting one of your biggest time and finacial invetments. In addition, the pets will get less intractive excercise and suffer as well. Once a day, once or twice a week "Scooping" of your yard will make it a place where everyone enjoys spending time.

#3. Fly Control

Flies will consume and lay eggs in feces. These same flies will then come into your house and then spread disease as they pause on your counter and food. Need I say more about keeping feces up to prevent this cycle?

#4. Responsible Pet Ownership

Your responsibility to clean up after your pet doesn't end when your dog leaves your yard. There are probably fewer things that aggravate neighbors more than a dog that 'goes' in their yard. Pet owners need to clean up after their pets every time they go to the bathroom. Period! No exceptions. If you are walking in the neighborhood, pick up with a plastic bag. If you don't have a yard, then walk your dog on a leash or hire a dog walker from The Poop Squad Pet Waste Removal & Pet Sitting Services. Don't make your responsibility somebody else's problem.

#5. Preventing Stool Eating

While most dog owners think this doesn't apply to them or their dog, the shocking truth is that most dogs will engage in this unsavory practice at some point in their life.Dogs evolved as carnivore/scavengers and feces were considered fair game in lean times. To prevent this occasional indiscretion from becoming a life-long habit, clean up feces as soon as possible, especially in young dogs where the problem is most prevalent.

At the first sign of this bad habit consider adding an oral product like Dis-Taste to your dog's food to decrease the palatability of the stools.
