Is Roundup Safe for Dogs?

Roundup is safe for dogs and has virtually no health risks when used properly, according to the Roundup website. Once the application of Roundup is finished and the weedkiller has dried, dogs can use the treated areas.

The primary reason to keep dogs away from Roundup that has been freshly applied is to prevent them from picking up the mixture and tracking it around to areas where it is unwanted. It takes a few hours for Roundup to dry, so it's important to have a secure place to keep pets in the meantime to avoid undesirable damage to grass, gardens or other areas.
