Question: can i use dog or cat manure as compost just like horse or cow manure

Answer: Ted,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Using pet manure is generally discouraged due to public health concerns and certain diseases such as toxoplasmosis from cat manure which can affect a pregnant woman's baby.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
