Not cleaning up your dog’s feces
Medical experts and veterinarians say that dog’s waste contains dangerous bacteria that can infect other people or animals. Other people can get giardia, salmonella or E. coli by direct transfer or by contaminating water or grass.
So, besides the fact that not cleaning up your dog’s feces is not polite, it could affect the lives of other animals or it could happen to you as well.
“Nobody likes walking in their yard and stepping in another person’s dog poop. If you take your dog for a walk around your neighborhood, make sure to pick up after your dog,” said the vet, Sara Ochoa.
