Roundup is dangerous if ingested by an animal no matter how long ago it was sprayed. However, if you are using it for an area where your pet will walk but not ingest it, it is recommended you wait until the roundup has fully dried before allowing your pet into that area. The active ingredient in roundup that can be dangerous while wet is glyphosate, and if a pet does come in contact with it they may drool, have stomach upset, lose their appetite or become sleepy.

Is roundup spray deadly to horses?

While the chemical that is active in Round-up is not considered harmful after it has set for a few hours, the surfacant (makes it stick to the leaves of a plant) is known to cause problems. The directions for Roundup usually say to allow 24 hrs before turning animals back out. Round-up is a Herbicide, it doesn't kill things with blood in them. I've sprayed Round-up hundreds of times and it has not harmed my animals. But what most people do to stay on the safe side is take their animals out for a while when the use weed killer. Hope this helped! :)

Are there any bad effects from using roundup weed killer?

Roundup has some positives (i.e. it breaks down once inside the plant it kills into fairly innocuous substances), but before then it can harm good plants instead of bad ones if misapplied and also hurt animals, children, or others who come into contact with it or if it is stored improperly. Such chemicals should be a last resort after nonchemical attempts have been exhausted.
