British inventor Kevan Norton has developed a product to combat the problem of germs after dog owners have cleared up after their dog.

Kevan says the problem is underestimated because pet owners are unaware of the millions of germs left behind after scooping and do not understand the risks.

“It’s very much out of sight, out of mind until something goes wrong,” he said.

The product, PooGuard, is designed to enable pet owners to ‘pick up properly’. It is a foaming disinfectant that is simply sprayed on to the ground after pick-up, destroying 99.99% of viruses and bacteria found in dog faeces.

Kevan says it is tough enough to kill parvovirus, giardia, salmonella, enterobacter and streptococcus. A bitter repellent discourages the pet from approaching treated poo, also helping to prevent spread while the product gets to work. It is safe to use around children and pets, the makers say, can be used indoors and out and does not harm the environment.

It was awarded pet product innovation of the year by PetQuip last year and is available from Pedigree Wholesale as a 50ml carry size to use during walks and a 300ml can to use in and around the home, parks or on sports pitches.
