This is National Scoop the Poop Week and Dog Poop Day!

This is National Scoop the Poop Week and Dog Poop Day!  Are you celebrating yet?!  This is a time to clean up the canine calling cards left by Fido and Fifi over the winter.  Be gone land mines!  Besides creating a nasty mess in your yard (or your neighbor’s), it’s a health hazard and can even pollute the groundwater.  Pets can carry many intestinal parasites, some of which are zoonotic, which is why it is important to pick up after your pet not just today but every day.   It won’t go away by itself, so this is the week to scoop it up and dispose of it properly.  Your family, friends and neighbors will thank you for cleaning it up, and so will your dog!
