    we only have a back yard no garden quite small and i clear and detol it frequently, our bin is in the yard but its a big wheelie bin so he can’t get in there, there are a few flies around though so maybe he’s licking something out there, but usually its just straight in and out…but it could be something from the nature reserve he walks in everyday with my dad…there is loads of wild life there and lots of large ponds which maybe becoming a bit stagnent with algea (SP?) he’s probably getting something from there  :-\

    i was thinking pidgeon and/or seagull faeces….

    have you got any nesting close by…roof tops chimney pots etc

    recent studies are showing that there is more bacteria in seagull poo than in raw sewage…including all the norms + camp and e coli etc

    there are loads of seagulls nesting and last night there were two big baby seagulls eating a pidgeon  😮

    maybe just walking through the poo and then washing his paws is enough ?

    hi,

    just looked pigeons up and they can carry camplobacter and salmonella in their droppings – it sounds like you may need something specific which will kill these in the yard ?

    bonnie had campy when she first came here – there is some info here – http://www.castlepoint.gov.uk/Documents/leaflets/Environment/InfectiousDiseases/campylobacter.pdf but i can see from briefly googling some strains seem to be resistant to certain disinfectants

    hope this helps – i used to battle with pigeons on our balcony all the time in our flat 🙁

    could be coccidae (sp) and Virkon is a good disinfectant for this type of bug
