Q:

I am looking for a vegetable garden fertilizer that is dog friendly. My dogs eat everything outside. Could you recommend a garden fertilizer that will not hurt my dogs.

- Multnomah County, OR
A:

This is a question for a local vet. There are many fertilizers both organic and conventional, and many fertilizers can contain diffrent pesticides. So the answer, it just depends. Preference is not to allow the dog to eat fertilizers. When fertilizers are used, water it into the soil, or bury the fertilizer that has been applied.
