My Dog’s Feet Were Burning—So I Switched To Safe Organic Lawn Care!
Lawn Care and Pet Safety
It is becoming common knowledge that conventional, chemical pesticides and fertilizers are dangerous for the environment and its inhabitants. They degrade soil, pollute water, and affect the health of humans, pets, and wildlife. If you have your lawn treated with these chemicals, there are potential risks to your pets’ health. The American Veterinary Medical Association warns that “Some fertilizers and pesticides can be toxic to dogs. Avoid letting your pet walk, run, play or roam in areas that have recently been treated with fertilizers or pesticides.” When your pet walks through a chemically-treated lawn, it can pick up any remaining chemical treatment residue on the grass. This can cause skin rashes, nausea and vomiting, eye irritations, respiratory health problems, and potential long-term health issues.

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It!
I recently had a conversation with a client, Mike, who told me that when he was enrolled in a chemical lawn care program with another company last season, his dogs would come inside and lick their paws after each fertilization application because their feet were burning. This season, he came across some information on Paradise Lawns’ organic programs and decided to make the change. Mike said the change was worth it for him: the dogs haven’t licked their paws after the lawn care treatment application since he made the switch to organic! Thanks to Mike’s decision to switch to organic lawn care treatment, his pets are healthier and safer.
