DOG POOP IS NOT FERTILIZER:
Dog poop is bad for grass because it is not a fertilizer. Dog's have a high protein based diet that creates a very acidic excrement. Contrary to popular opinion not all poop is the same. For example cow manure is in fact good for vegetation because cows eat only vegetation and not meat. A dog's diet is quite different, most dog foods are composed of meat or meat byproducts, this creates a high acidic waste that is bad for grass and can leave your backyard pretty unhealthy, creating discoloring and killing many plants. Dog waste is unsafe around the home, it may contain many harmful bacteria and parasites that can make humans and other animals very ill.
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY (EPA):
In 1991 The Environmental Protection Agency deemed pet waste a “Non-point source of pollution”, which puts solid pet waste in the same category as oil and toxic chemicals!
According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
Pet droppings can contribute to diseases animals pass to humans, called Zoo-noses. When infected dog poop is deposited on your lawn, the eggs of certain round worms and other parasites can linger in your soil for years. Anyone who comes into contact with that soil — be it through gardening, playing sports, walking barefoot or any other means— runs the risk of coming into contact with those eggs: especially your dog(s).
Some of the hard-to-pronounce parasites your lawn could harbor include Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Salmonella, as well as Hookworms, Ringworm 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 put things in their mouths or eyes.
