There are great differences in yard care in New York State and in lawn maintenance St Petersburg Florida. But the one thing that all lawns have in common is the need for a safe and yet beautiful yard for the pets in our families.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so let's examine a checklist of hidden dangers in the great outdoors. We step out of our back door and the first thing we see is our freshly manicured and decked out flowerbeds.

The blooms are beautiful to the eye, and they add a pleasant sweetness to the air. Their blooms are a tempting snack for dogs or a lovely place for cats to roll around.

Examples of poisonous plants are Easter Lilies, Poinsettias, American Holly, and Alaska. These common household and yard plants can cause anything from intestinal disturbance to death.

Wise Georgia homeowners will check with lawn services Atlanta for indigenous plants. Call on people trained to know the safest plants for your yard in your part of the country.

Are there any limbs hanging precariously, threatening to fall when a strong wind blows? The last thing you need is to look out to see your cat of dog pinned to the ground and injured by a falling limb.

No matter what part of the country you live in, check your trees every spring. Stepping over towards the shed where all of your lawn care equipment is stored, we see some chemical containers leaning against the side of the building.

These containers should be locked up inside the shed, safely away from pets and children. Do not risk accidental ingestion of fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, or other lawn treatment chemicals.

Mowers, edgers, saws, or shears can lead to accidents and serious injury. Properly store all lawn equipment and chemicals behind the locked door of your shed or garage.

Depending on the chemical and toxins, it could lead to vomiting, diarrhea, seizures and in some cases' death. Kids and Their Toys Strolling out onto the lawn itself, we enjoy the lush green carpet and know that our dogs and cats love it too.

Certain breeds of dogs have very strong jaws and teeth, and they can chew apart any toy left within their grasp. Once pieces of chewed toys are swallowed they become hazards for creating blockages or tears in the intestines.

Caution your kids to pick up all toys when they are finished playing outdoors. Water That is Growing Algae At the edge of the yard we find a small pond.

It's nice to look at but when we examine it closely we see green algae floating on the surface of the water. These bacteria can cause more of the same types of sickness as other yard dangers- vomiting and diarrhea, lethargy and weakness.

Once again, these symptoms can last a few days and make a pet very sick or it can lead to death. When a dog snacks on the bait, the can show signs of distress in as little as two hours.

Restlessness, vomiting, tremors and high body temperatures are some immediate symptoms. Spiders and Other Biting Bugs Doghouses or enclosures need to be inspected regularly.

Sometimes our friends don't realize that a dog is watching and waiting for the opportunity to make a break for it. Once you have checked your yard for these hidden hazards, it's time to look around and find ways to make this space fun for your pets.

When we noticed him biting at his leg, I turned him over and saw many red patches, etc. Also have to bathe him with a special shampoo twice a week for three weeks. Just gave the last of the antibiotics yesterday, and he only has a couple prednisone left.

Noticed when we walk through our lawn, our feet or shoes get covered with what looks like rust. Did some reading online tonight and found that it is a lawn fungus called rust “.

So, I am wondering of the rust fungus could have led to the skin infection. It is possible that your dog has an underlying allergy (food or environmental) that is causing him to be itchy, and the excessive biting and scratching caused a secondary skin infection.

She said that these bacteria exists on all dogs, and something triggers it to go a little crazy. When it first erupted, he had many raw red spots and pustules.

On the days he doesn't he chews at his legs, obviously trying to scratch itches. Gave him a hair cut today, so I could see his skin better, and he looks good.

He likely had a staph skin infection. I'd consider maybe doing a diet trial on him for food allergies. A diet trial would consist of picking food with a novel protein source, something he's never eaten before.

Lamb, Venison, Duck, Salmon tends to be good places to start. The most common allergens are chicken and beef, followed by dairy products and much less likely, grains.

You'd feed the new diet exclusively for 6-8 weeks-- no table scraps, no treats, to see if the itching goes away. If you don't want to do that, then you should bath his legs every single time he comes in from outside to get off whatever may be irritating him.

Hmm mm... seems unlikely that he would suddenly be allergic to the food he has been eating since we got him. Gave him a hair cut and it was much easier to get the shampoo down to his skin.

Well, the thing about food allergies is that they pop up at any time after like 5-6 months old. He's had plenty of time to develop an allergy to the food by this point, so you should not rule it out.

Squishy, Im new to this forum I found it while I was googling rust fungus. Just wondering if you ever figured out what was going on with your dog because I seem to be having the same issue now.

Our youngest dog has had issues since we discovered lawn rust fungus. My dog has developed seasonal allergies and I live in an apartment complex with lawn rust.

I've gotten him outpoint injections, sequel, Benadryl, Clarity, prescription anti-fungal shampoo. They like to push their high dollar meds that don't work.

I'm going to try the 50/50 apple cider and water spray when I'm sure he has no open skin irritations. I'm also going to try local honey in his food over the winter in case it is pollen that he is allergic to.

I give my pup a little dab pretty much daily as well. Lots of benefits from honey too including antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.

Actually you could try some honey on his wounds, as long as it doesn't encourage him to lick (if he has access to it), but it's great for skin inflammation, burns and things like that.
