Ask The Expert: What Are The Dangers of Accumulated Pet Waste?

Q: What are the dangers of accumulated pet waste?
A: Dog waste contains harmful, infectious bacteria such as E. coli and salmonella, as well as parasites like roundworms. Accumulated dog waste can lead to health hazards and wash into rivers, beaches, and other waterways as a contaminant when it rains. It’s important to remove and dispose of dog waste weekly to prevent adverse health effects on your family and pets.
