Snow reveals dog poop filled with harmful pathogens

Uncollected waste can pose a significant health risk, spreading parasites, bacteria, and viruses that can infect humans and animals. A pet owner once experienced their dog getting sick from contaminated water at a dog park where the animal had been playing. The water was likely contaminated with dog waste, leading to the pet contracting giardia, an intestinal parasite that can cause diarrhea, especially in young dogs. Specialist researcher Thomas Grönthal explains that when snow melts, pathogens from waste can flow downstream and accumulate in puddles, posing a risk for infections.

Intestinal parasites such as Giardia and Canine Intestinal worms can be spread through dog waste and also infect humans. Additionally, bacteria found in dog feces can lead to illness in both humans and dogs. These bacteria can cause symptoms like diarrhea and stomach cramps, and in extreme cases, can even be fatal, especially for vulnerable individuals with weakened immune systems. While infectious diseases from dog waste are rare in Finland compared to other countries, it is still important to collect and properly dispose of waste to prevent the spread of parasites and bacteria. Multi-resistant bacteria are more common in dogs in Finland, posing a risk for difficult-to-treat infections in both dogs and humans. Viral infections between dogs and humans are rare, with effective vaccination programs helping to prevent the spread of viruses like canine parvovirus. Proper waste removal, especially of diarrheal waste, can help reduce the risk of disease transmission.
