This is hard for me to believe, but I guess the truth is that I don’t really know. I always assumed that the fact that the poop was white made it less harmful, but I’m not really sure. I’m probably going to have to come up with a scientific proof to back up my intuition, but I’d hope that it’s not the case.
I think poop is pretty safe, because the majority of it is made up of bacteria. The other most common bacteria found in dog poop are salmonella, campylobacter, and listeria.
Campylobacter can cause vomiting and diarrhea, and salmonella can cause diarrhea and abdominal cramps.
I think that poop that’s brown doesn’t matter. But I’m not so sure. If it’s not bacteria (which it is) it may be a form of human waste. I’m not sure though.
The way to get rid of those bacteria is to soak in a solution of baking soda and water to kill them. If it’s something you know is naturally occurring that may be dangerous, it may be best to disinfect it first.
As a dog owner, I can tell you that the smell of poop is actually pretty disgusting (and I was once told by a veterinarian that the smell was actually an indicator of the presence of E.coli). I don’t know if there would be any danger in washing your dog’s poop off with water and baking soda.
I suppose you could rinse your poop in a sink full of water but I think that would be bad for the environment.
It depends on what kind of poop it is. Toilet-seat poop is usually pretty harmless when it gets in the toilet. I know that poop from a dog has a certain smell to it, but to be honest, I don’t think it would be dangerous to wash it. Especially if it’s not a big pile, if you have to go to the bathroom you just wash it right away.
In fact, I think its just as bad to not shower after your dog poops. The amount of bacteria, viruses, and parasites that can live in your dog’s poop is enough to kill anyone for weeks.
But still, I think its safe to say that if your poop is not just white poop, then its probably not something that you should be washing in the toilet. But that being said, just because poop doesn’t smell bad doesn’t mean it isn’t actually dangerous.
