FACTS ABOUT DOG POOP AND ITS FREE LOADERS

Tapeworm
"Poop rice," as  described by my veterinarian, is the single most common infection transmitted by  discarded dog poop in the United States. An estimated 35% of the indoor animals  that contract tapeworm are thought to get it from infected poop brought into the  home on the shoes of humans who have stepped in it. Tapeworm is a parasite that  needs fleas to fulfil its life cycle, but poop is crucial to the process.
Roundworm
One worm of this  class, Toxocarisis, is transmitted to humans through infected animal  poop. It can cause rash, fever, and a loss of vision.
Cryptosporidium
These protozoa  cause diarrhea in dogs, cats, and humans. According to some health  professionals, many of us may have had it without knowing it -- it can go  undetected two out of the three times it has been contracted. You might have  just blamed Taco Bell.
Salmonellosis
This nasty  little bacterium causes fever, vomiting, diarrhea (or, as we Poop Reporters call  it, "double doodie"), and headaches that leave both pets and people weak and  sometimes unable to recover for months. Although most often associated with  uncooked chicken, this bacterium can be brought into your home -- with  devastating results in the young and elderly -- by, once again, simply walking  through infected poop.
Giardia
This single-celled  organism causes flatulence (yes, that's a bad thing), diarrhea, and overall  digestive disorder. It can live outside of the host for vast periods of time,  which is why it easily and successfully spreads via infected poop.
E. Coli
This bacterium  produces a toxin that injures the epithelial cells of our digestive tract, which  can lead to severe bleeding and even permanent kidney damage.
Parvovirus
This small, single  DNA-stranded virus is species-specific, not xenotransferable, but there are many  types of it. In dogs, the virus capsule -- which, unlike some viruses, is not  composed of fat which means disinfectants can't kill it as easily -- affects  quick-splitting cells like those of bone marrow, the lymph system, and the  intestinal tract. Its initial symptoms include Rover vomiting and diarrhea-ing,  which is why those symptoms should always be treated with medical attention,  especially in puppies and adolescent dogs.

Well, that settled the argument for me.  Infected poop spreads infections. But what about those of us who, like me, give  our animals excellent health care? "My dog has none of those diseases," I might  say, "so why should I pick up his dook?"

Because poop -- even "quality" poop that may  not infect humans and our pets with diseases -- still causes trouble.

When you leave poop on the sidewalk, it's  eventually swept into the sewers -- not the same sewers through which human poop  travels, but the storm sewers, which often discharge directly into the waterways  without any treatment. Thus poop degrades water quality, leading to cloudiness  and an increase of algae. (If you have an aquarium, you know this to be true.)  Pet poop has been considered responsible for almost one fourth of the fecal  contamination of the waterways -- those very same waterways from which you get  your drinking water.

And then there are the flies. While they are  completely indispensable in our ecosystem as garbage men (maggots recycle dead  carcasses and poop), they refuse to confine themselves to the poop in your yard  and on the sidewalk. They fly into your house and sit on your living surfaces.  And they don't wash their hands -- so if you leave poop lying around, they're  going to touch it on the way to your kitchen. And here's what they might bring  with them:

Shigellosis
A variety of  diseases, like dysentery, that cause diarrhea.
Polio
Believe it. Poliomyelitis can be transmitted by a fly landing on your food.  Susceptible people -- like those who aren't properly vaccinated -- can and have  contracted polio in this manner.
Eye Diseases
Trachoma and  epidemic conjunctivitis (a.k.a pink eye) are transmitted by houseflies in Asia,  Africa, and the Pacific regions of the world.
Diseases that are less commonly transmitted by  houseflies include Salmonellosis, Cholera, Amoebic Dysentery, and parasitic  worms such as pinworm, whipworm, hookworm, and tapeworm.

Flies won't necessarily acquire those diseases  from poop. But if they're carrying those diseases, poop will enable those  dangerous flies to thrive."
