When we pick up dog poo, we leave millions of viruses and on the ground. However careful we are, it’s unavoidable. So, spray that spot with POO Guard and help to avoid transfer to us or to other dogs.
It’s highly effective in so many areas...
In hundreds of locations, POO Guard can be used to quickly kill millions of bacteria and viruses left on the ground after dog poo has been picked up. A quick spray of POO Guard stoops them leading to infection – protecting us and our dogs.
We applaud those who pick up dog poo – a big thanks from all of us.
But there’s more we can be doing. What we ask is – when you pick up – please pick up properly.
Bag the poo and then spray the ground to kill the tens of millions of viruses and bacteria left over. It’s like washing your hands after going to the loo.
So please join us in encouraging dog
Parvovirus is a killer.
Infection from Parvovirus can be lethal, particularly in puppies. PooGuard contains a safe patented active ingredient which is proven extremely effective against this virus. By spraying the ground after we’ve picked up dog poo, we can kill the virus and make the outdoors that bit safer.
Kills bacteria & viruses (including Parvovirus) left on the ground after picking up dog poo
Foaming action visually marks the spot for a few moments so you can avoid it whilst it gets to work
Repels other dogs, keeping them safe from cross -infection
Whilst we all love dogs, we need to be mindful that dog poo is home to literally millions upon millions of bacteria and viruses.
Picking up dog poo makes sure that most of this is carefully disposed of – but millions of bacteria and viruses remain on the ground. Each gram of dog poo is reckoned to contain around 24 million bacteria and viruses, including many that are dangerous if ingested by other dogs, and many that are harmful to humans.
These bacteria and viruses come into contact with our food, or are simply transferred to the hands of toddlers and children when they play outdoors – from which point it’s incredibly easy for tiny remnants of poo to find their way into our digestive systems.
Bacteria and viruses can also enter sports players through small cuts and grazes.
“Part of an invaluable armoury of protection against cross-infection”
John Ambler BVM&S, MRCVS
Most of us pick up our dog’s poo because we’re aware that it’s unpleasant to walk in, and because it carries hundreds of millions of harmful bacteria and viruses.
But after even the best pick up, there are still millions of these bacteria and viruses remaining on the ground, and in high footfall areas such as pavements, gardens, play areas and sports fields, these are quickly spread.
And the spread causes cross-infection by very simple transfer – transmitting viruses such as Parvovirus to other dogs, and infections such as E-Coli and Salmonella to us.
Some of this is harmless, but much is potentially extremely dangerous – dog poo remains are a significant cause of the spread of Parvovirus between dogs, and numerous bacteria from dog poo remains can cause us very serious infection.
