Abstract:

Discusses the envrionmental impact of pet ownership, including segments on disposing of cat and dog waste, alternatives to toxic flea treatments, the illegal practices of some providers to the exotic bird and fish industry, and the unintended consequences of dumping aquariuam contents (especially the popular aquarium plant Caulerpa taxifolia) into drains that lead to natural bodies of water.

"Bill and his friends Leslie and Julianna discover that even our cats and dogs leave big carbon footprints! Bill explores the truth about the environmental impact of dog poop, including the fact that dogs leave deposits full of microorganisms that enter our water sources. Landfills are full of plastic bags of dog waste deposited by the few owners who clean up after their dogs. Pet food contains chemicals and waste animal products and the demand for kitty litter results in mining topsoil from American grasslands. Meanwhile 'fishing methods' that satisfy the demand for tropical fish have ruined coral reefs"--Publisher's description.
