  • No, I think he'll be fine. My LO got a hold of cat poop one time and he was fine.

  • We have to disinfect our hands after we poop but a baby can eat cat or dog poop and be ok?

  • Do you have an advise nurse to call at your peds office? i know that once while potty training our older son our younger son found a dried piece of poop in the toys and started to taste it EEEWWWW!!! however, all was well!! i actually would be more concerned with the heartworm med than without it especiually if you give it to your dog regularly.
