Most dogs roll around and walk in their feces; they sometimes occasionally eat it. This poses a risk to humans, especially children who play in your yard; they may put their hands in their mouths and rub their eyes. Parasites can transfer easily from feces to humans.
Hookworms and roundworms are the biggest threat, and they are transmitted to children and adults who come into contact with feces. These worms then find their way into your body and you become the new host.
When a dog’s feces contain these worms, the droppings transmit the worms to the ground where the worms can live for many years. If you are exposed to the larvae, it can penetrate the skin.
Parvo Virus is a deadly disease to puppies and they get this disease through their mouth. Whipworm, Coccidia, and Giardia are other parasites that can be present in dog feces.
To prevent these parasites and diseases, it is important to pick up dog feces at least once a week and keep your yard free from droppings.
