Beautiful lawns require work…
… not to mention chemical treatments for weeds, bugs and pests and fertilizers.
Your four-legged friends walk, roll and play on the lawn and get the chemicals on their paws and fur. Then, they track those same chemicals into your home and get it on the floor, the furniture and your family.. When a dog licks it’s fur or paws, they ingest these chemicals…and they can cause health risks. One study found that one species of dogs exposed to herbicides had occurrences of bladder cancer four to seven times higher than the same breed of dogs not exposed to herbicides.*
Another study conducted by the School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University took place over a period of six years. This study demonstrated that dogs exposed to lawn chemicals, in particular those used by professional lawn care companies, has a much higher risk of developing malignant lymphoma.** Flea and tick preventatives are actually pesticides, no matter how they are packaged – pills, liquids, shampoos, collars, etc.
So what is the solution? Avoid chemicals on your lawn, in your garden and on your pet. Or, you can contact us for a FREE estimate on having an artificial grass solution installed at your home. From a small dog run to an entire lawn, we can custom-design a solution to give your precious pooch a safe, healthy environment on which to run, roll and play.
Dogs LOVE playing on EasyTurf and they take to it just as naturally as they do to live grass. Dogs that are normally sensitive to grass pollen allergies enjoy EasyTurf’s allergen free advantage. An even better advantage to ALL dogs is that EasyTurf eliminates an insect environment (fleas, ticks, fire ants, etc.).
Pet owners love EasyTurf because it keeps their dogs and their homes cleaner. This saves a LOT of time (and frustration) which now can be spent on enjoyable family or pet-fun activities, instead of constant cleaning. Your dogs will be playing on a safer and cleaner surface. Dogs will stay clean and they won’t be exposed to any herbicides or pesticides which can compromise their health.
