Is My Soil Safe for Growing Food?

My new puppy has pooped several times in the vegetable garden since last fall. When he was young he had a type of worm. Can I plant my vegetables there this spring or do I need to change all the soil?

I can't imagine it could be a problem, I mean, no one can control where animals poop. I would pick it up whenever you can, but I wouldn't worry about it.

If you cover it up with composted manure about 6 inches or more or dig a hole & bury it, then keep the dog out of the garden. It should be o k, good luck.
