What about security?

Our service techs will not bypass any security measures to do their job. They will not climb fences nor "sneak in" to do their job. You must provide us with access on each visit. We will notify you immediately if our tech person is unable to do their job because they don't have access to your property.

What if, for some reason your techs can't get in?

First we'll call you at the contact number you provide. If we are unable to reach you, we will skip your service for that day and waive the service fee for the first occurrence. If we are unable to access your property on subsequent visits, we will charge you in full for each additional visit that we cannot access your property.

Health Hazards Associated with Pet Waste

Most pet owners find it hard to believe that their cherished pet's droppings can present a major health hazard.

It's estimated that a single gram of dog waste can contain 23 million fecal coliform bacteria, which are known to cause cramps, diarrhea, intestinal illness, and serious kidney disorders in humans.

EPA even estimates that two or three daysí worth of droppings from a population of about 100 dogs would contribute enough bacteria to temporarily close a bay, and all watershed areas within 20 miles of it, to swimming and shell fishing.

Probably the greatest health concern associated with animal wastes is pathogens. Many pathogens found in animal waste can infect humans if ingested.

Organisms such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia lamblia, and Salmonella can induce symptoms ranging from skin sores to chest pain. E. coli, which causes diarrhea and abdominal gas, has been the source of disease outbreaks in several States. Particularly virulent strains of E. coli can cause serious illness and fatalities.

Cryptosporidium is of particular concern because it is highly resistant to disinfection with chlorine. This protozoan causes gastrointestinal illness lasting two to ten days in healthy individuals but can be fatal in people with weakened immune systems.

Dog and cat droppings often contain roundworms and other parasitic nematodes. Infection by just a few roundworms usually causes no problems, but more severe infections may cause fevers, bronchitis, asthma, or vision problems.

Cat feces may contain toxoplasmosis, a parasite that infects humans and other animals. Cats are the only animals known to excrete toxoplasmosis oocysts, which are resistant to most disinfectants. Toxoplasmosis is a serious health concern for pregnant women and immuno-compromised individuals.
