3.6 billion pounds of dog waste/year is produced
in the United States alone!!!!!
This is equal to 800 football fields, one foot
This is a hidden health issue that no one wants
to "touch" as approximately 50 million registered
dogs in the United States produces more than 5,000 tons of
Dog waste frequently releases Toxocara worm
eggs into the ground, where the eggs remain for long periods
of time. Dr. Mervyn Taylor with the Children's Hospital in
Dublin, Ireland, recently found an unexpectedly high 30% of
2000 school children he examined had developed antibodies
to the Toxocara worm, suggesting exposure to animal feces
or property exposed to dog waste. The symptoms of Toxocariasis
infection include fatigue, headaches, chest ailments, abdominal
pain, and even partial blindness.
Can you imagine if only 10% of our children
are silently affected? When is the percentage enough to look
at the solution?
The US Centers for Disease Control has issued
Toxocariasis prevention recommendations that include deworming
pets and promptly removing and disposing of their waste. The
CDC is working closely with the American Veterinarian Association's
Parasitic Division to encourage veterinarians to educate pet
owners about the risks of disease transmission from dog waste.
A cleaner, healthier and more environmentally
friendly solution to the dog waste problem, found in millions
of acres of public green spaces, is the Dog Toilet System(TM),
developed and distributed by LIPA USA, Inc. in Raymond, Maine.
Dog Toilet System- installed at parks, campgrounds,
beaches, condominiums, veterinarian clinics and public lands-provides
both a safe receptacle for accumulated waste, and pick-up
bags available to any dog walker. "PICK UP, BAG IT and
DISPOSE IT" is the answer to this nagging urban and suburban
dilemma. Even waste disposal companies applaud a system that
reduces unsanitary contact with animal waste.
According to Dr. Mark Mason, a veterinarian
from the Bath-Brunswick area of Maine, " The Dog Toilet
System has been a huge hit in this area and is very easy to
maintain. The system keeps our grounds looking good and really
cuts down on odor." The Dog Toilet system used across
the country from coast to coast, is a low cost solution for
a high risk health concern that can impact adults and children
who share grassy spaces with dogs. With the Dog Toilet System
love it because it is a proactive solution and dog walkers
too, because they are free to walk anywhere with their dogs.
is the time! BE RESPONSIBLE, pick up after your dogs and regularly
deworm them to prevent a potentially dangerous health hazard

customers or condominium associations, campgrounds, hotels
B&B's, veterinarian clinics and retirement communities
have now a way to at least purchase and distribute the pick-up
bags. Some communities in Florida are actively pursuing this
by charging their residents/dog/month which covers the cost
and has been very effective in curbing the problem.
you realize that 23,000 hotels and B&B's are now welcoming
dogs throughout the United States and Canada. Please check
