You might not be the type of person to spray your lawn and garden with Roundup weed killer … but that doesn’t mean your dog is safe from it.

Roundup is everywhere. It’s in your dog’s food, in his water and on the ground. Since your dog is exposed to it daily, the million-dollar question is … is Roundup safe for dogs?

What Is Roundup?

Roundup is a herbicide. It’s available in a bottle for home application and it’s also widely used by farmers and by cities for weed control. Its primary ingredient is glyphosate. But it also contains surfactants to help the glyphosate cling to the plants.

Glyphosate is one of the most widely used herbicides in the United States. It’s used in agriculture, on your neighbor’s lawns and gardens, in forestry and even for aquatic weed control.
