    Dog crap?

    If dried with heat, can it be used as fertilizer?

    HAHAHAA Did you put the pictures there in case we didn't understand what you said?

    Well, if you want dog crap (since it does come in huge amounts) to be part of your fertilizer, why not? Make a compost heap with dog crap.

    Do you have a strange desire to sniff a fire hydrant?

    I'd say it depends on what the animal has been eating. If it has been fed a balanced diet of vegetables, meats, and grains then yeah, sure, why not? It it's been feed some alpo or some other processed dog food, i'd just shovel it into the neighbors yard. Why? Because not only are you what you eat but what you eat has eaten. You eat a plant that's been growing in soil that has dog poo mixed in = eating dog poo = alpo or veggies + lamb/beef/chicken + rice/wheat.

    I think the choice is clear.

    From the internets
    "Although dog and cat manure both contain organic nutrients useful to plants, neither is safe to use in soil containing food crops. Both contain parasitic pathogens that are harmful to human health. Dog manure can contain the eggs of Toxocara canis (the common large roundworm), which can also infect humans. It's estimated that 90% of young puppies are infected with this worm-many are born infected-and up to 50% of all adult dogs. The eggs can be transferred to the human mouth by a person's fingers or from foods that have been in contact with dog feces. Toxocara eggs can remain viable in the soil for up to 10 years depending on environmental conditions. Because no information is known on the effects hot composting has on Toxocara eggs, it also unsafe to add dog manure to compost heaps intended for food crops. If you have a dog feces problem in your garden, remove the feces and take care to use good hygiene practices (thoroughly washing hands and vegetables) to avoid possible contamination."

    composting will break down almost anything given enough time and/or effort.

    Horse/Cow manure is used predominately in composting though because it is almost exclusively vegetable matter.

    I wouldnt use canine, feline or humane manure for my compost personally.

    I saw a special on discovery channel the other day about fertilizer, it was saying one of the best fertilizers on the market now is made from human waste.
    If that works, and we KNOW it works from cows, then I see no reason why dogs stuff wouldn't work.
    "I am for doing good to the poor, but...I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed...that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer."

    i know of a farm that fertalizez their grain crops with processed compost stuff that is from the city waste treatment plant... the city trucks the compost stuff in via large trucks and then spreads it on the fields. the stuff looks like very dark dirt. i suspect their is plenty of crap in that but its been processed so much that it is very safe.


    using dog poo in my mind is just as bad as using cat manure..... nasty.
