Diseases Spread By Dog Poop

Do we sanitize our hands after picking up dog poop? Why not? We wash our hands after using the toilet. Are we aware of the many diseases that we can acquire from dog waste… even though we don’t think we “touched anything”? Please read on and we are assured that you will now carry that bottle of hand sanitizer on your walks.

23 MILLION FECAL COLIFORM BACTERIA IN 1 GM DOG POOP

A single gram of canine waste can contain 23 million fecal coliform bacteria, many of which are harmful to humans. Campylobacteriosis, E-Coli, Salmonellosis, and Yersiniosis are all human bacterial diseases transmitted by dog poop. Cyclospora, Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Roundworm and Tapeworms are parasitic infections that become more infectious as the dog poop ages, yet still pose a risk to humans whenever they are present.

Dog feces are also the most common sources of several diseases which are found in canines. Parvo Virsus, is one of the deadliest disease, especially among puppies. Hookworm and Roundworm are common and both culprits can be passed on to humans. Whipworm, Giardia, and finally Coccidia are all acquired through dog waste that is not picked up. So picking up dog poop protects us humans, our environment, and other canines.

However, we are not done once we have picked up the canine waste. We must wash our hands to protect ourselves and others from these disease spread by dog poop. If it is difficult to find soap and warm water on our daily walk, then carrying a small bottle of hand sanitizer is our only option.
