Prevent Common Pet Injuries with Artificial Grass

As a pet owner, we know keeping your furry friends safe and healthy is always a top priority. Unfortunately, some pets are prone to getting injuries, especially when they like to play rough and tumble in the backyard. One of the best ways to prevent the most common pet injuries is by installing artificial turf in your yard. In this blog, we'll outline exactly how installing artificial turf can prevent injuries and keep your pets safe and healthy.

The Grass is ALWAYS Greener with DelaTurf


 

Preventing Slips and Falls


Pets, especially dogs, are known to be quite active, and they love to run around and play. However, if your pets are playing on natural grass, they may be at risk of slipping and falling. A natural lawn can become slippery, especially when wet, and this can cause your pets to lose their footing and fall. With the amount of rainfall we get in Central Florida, this risk sits top of mind.


By installing artificial turf, you can prevent slips and falls. Artificial grass is designed to be slip-resistant, even when wet. This means that your pets can run and play on the artificial grass without worrying about slipping and falling. Additionally, artificial turf is designed to provide a cushioned surface, which can help to reduce the impact of falls.


Preventing Burns


In the summer months, natural grass can become quite hot, especially in areas with high temperatures. If your pets are playing on a natural lawn during the hot summer months, they may be at risk of getting burns on their paws. These burns can be quite painful and can take a long time to heal.


High-quality artificial grass can actually prevent burns. While it will heat up in hotter temperatures, it won't get so hot as to cause burns. This means that your pets can play on the artificial turf without worrying about injuring their paws.


Preventing Allergies


Pets, just like humans, can be allergic to natural grass. If your pets are allergic to natural grass, they may experience symptoms such as itching, sneezing, skin conditions, and watery eyes. These symptoms can be quite uncomfortable for your pets and can affect their quality of life.

With artificial turf, you can prevent allergies. Artificial turf does not contain any of the allergens found in a natural lawn, which means that your pets can play on the artificial grass without experiencing any allergic reactions.


Preventing Parasites


Natural grass can be a breeding ground for parasites such as fleas and ticks. If your pets are playing on a natural lawn, they may be at risk of getting infected with these parasites. Fleas and ticks can cause a range of health problems for your pets, including skin irritation, infections, and diseases.


Prevent parasites entirely by installing synthetic turf. Artificial grass does not provide a suitable environment for parasites to thrive, which means that your pets are less likely to get infested with fleas and ticks.


Bonus: Preventing Digging


Some pets, especially dogs, love to dig. If your pets are digging on natural grass, they may damage the grass, which can affect the appearance of your lawn. Additionally, if your pets are digging in areas where there are buried cables or pipes, they may cause damage to these utilities.

Artificial grass is designed to be durable and resistant to digging, which means that your pets are less likely to damage the artificial grass, the utilities underneath it, and themselves.
