Zeo-Go is the Solution to Dog Poo Pollution

If you own a dog your lawn might not be a healthy place for your family to relax and play.

Dog poo is considered an environmental pollutant in the same category as herbicides, insecticides, oil, grease, toxic chemicals, and acid drainage.

Dog poo is composed of water, undigested food and bacteria. It is a carrier for heartworms, whipworms, hookworms, roundworms, tapeworms, parvovirus, giardia, salmonella and E. coli.

Also present are a wide range of resident bacteria that are needed for digestion. If dogs are infected with worms or other disease-causing microbes, these can be present in their poo.

The disgusting smell of dog poo is caused by microbes in the gut involved in the digestion of fatty acids.

38 per cent of Australian households own dogs

One medium-sized dog produces about 180 kg of poo a year. There are about 9 million dogs in Australia generating approximately 1.6 million tonnes of dog poo every year.

Flies land on fresh poo and then travel to other places spreading contaminants.

If dog poo is left on the street, it is washed into waterways, creating a potential health hazard.

Once pathogenic microbes from the poo get into waterways, they can find their way into other living things — including humans.
