There is so much information out there about how lawn chemicals are harmful to pets, humans and wildlife.  From traditional weed killers to toxic insecticides, it can all irritate your dog or make them sick. Dogs tend to be the pets that come into contact the most with harmful lawn pesticides, but other outdoor-loving pets are just as susceptible to negative health risks. All evidence, from scientific studies or pet owner observation, say that lawn pesticides and pets just don’t mix.

A study published in 2013 showed that herbicides can be detected in a dog’s urine after a lawn fertilization or treatment. This proves that the lawn chemicals make their way into pets’ systems after they are applied on the lawn. In addition, the study explains why exposure to herbicide-treated lawns is known to be associated with higher bladder cancer risk in dogs.

If you have pets, it’s important to keep the toxicity of pesticides and other products used on your property in mind when making a choice about your lawn care services. Dogs are particularly susceptible to the effects of lawn pesticides because they going outside regularly. Most dogs spend hours laying, playing, and rolling around on the lawn. Dogs are directly exposed to the chemicals on the lawn, and can even ingest those chemicals by licking their skin or paws.


Lawn Chemicals In Your House

Your pets expose your family to these toxic chemicals just by going outside. Even if you and your kids are staying off the lawn for days after it’s treated, it doesn’t make much difference in your home. Your dog is bringing the pesticides into the house. Similarly, if you sit or lay in an area where your pet has been, you are being exposed to the pesticides that were sprayed on your lawn.

Additionally, lawn pesticides easily disperse through your home even without a pet tracking them in. In fact, a 2001 study showed that a week after lawn treatment, 2,4-D was detected on all indoor surfaces. The study also found that children were up to 10x more likely to be exposed to this harmful pesticide in the week following treatment than they are the week before treatment. Even if your pets and kids are avoiding a chemically treated lawn, you could be exposed through chemical drift.
