Did you know that you can catch diseases from your dogs poo?
There are a number of parasites such as Toxocariasis which can cause pneumonia, coughing, fever, skin rash and liver enlargement. Plus other conditions such as Campylobacter and Salmonella may be picked up from dog faeces too.
This was one of the reasons we produced picadoo, keeping dog owners safe from harm when collecting their dogs poo. We have heard stories from dog owners of bags tearing or splitting (especially ladies with long fingernails) and coming into contact with the waste. Not pleasant at the best of times but also potentially harmful.
