Fertilizer – Pet danger

Q: I applied 16-4-8 granular fertilizer to my lawn. The bag states not to touch it and to keep it out of reach of pets and children. Is it really dangerous to my pet Yorkies?

A: The fertilizer is only dangerous if they eat it from the bag. Some dogs like the salty taste but most do not. After spreading the fertilizer on a lawn and watering it in, I foresee no ill effects.
