Scott Nimmo :

Hello and welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am an experienced small animal veterinary surgeon, I will be very pleased to work with you today and will try my best to answer your question to your satisfaction.

Scott Nimmo :

These products certainly don't harm dogs, so your dog would be at no risk if you want to give it a try. Whether it is effective is another question though ...

Scott Nimmo :

The minerals in these rocks are thought to change the nitrogen content of the urine thus making it not kill grass. You can use a low protein diet like a kidney diet to do the same thing. But like I said, no harm in giving it a try ...

Thanks for the answer. I have been using the Dog Rocks for about 9 months. It seems to have made a difference to the quality of my grass.


However my dog is now terminally unwell (she is elderly) I just needed re-assuring that the 'Dog Rocks' had no hand in her illness.

Expert:  Dr Scott Nimmo replied 3 years ago.
Hello again,

Glad to talk this over with you further ...

So sorry to hear about your dog's condition, but really Dog Rocks are very safe, I cannot see how this product could ever do your dog any harm. Her illness must have come form some other source ...

Kindest regards,

Scott

I know this is a difficult time for you, but the Dog Rocks will not be to blame.

I hope things work out as well as they can for your dog...

Kindest regards,


Scott.
