Fertilizers & Pets

A Quick Word of Caution

Fertilizers & Pets

As Spring and Summer roll in, many homeowners and pet parents will begin fertilizing their lawns. Should you be concerned? And, how long should I keep my dog off the grass once I’ve fertilized it?

Most online resources break it down as follows:

  • Pets – 24-48 hours
  • Children – 48 – 72 hours

Depending on where you live, the fertilizer granules (if you are using a spreader) will help you know. If you see the granules clearly visible on your grass, give it time. If you live in a rainy climate, they may dissipate quickly and give you a false sense of security. Follow the guidelines on the container.

If you are using a liquid application, the smell is often a clear indication the fertilizer is still pretty potent. Again, use your senses and err on the side of caution. In the meantime, when you fertilize, do so with an understanding your pet will need to go on more walks for a few days.
