Rittenhouse Square: Question for dog friends

Does anyone know what is in the bright blue crystals which were recently spread on the grass ? My pup became quite ill (vomiting and diarrhea) Although she is doing much better, the vet and I are trying to figure out what prompted this reaction. She is an active paw "cleaner" ( I do wipe her paws when she comes in, however...) We are trying to figure it all out -- is there anything in this substance which could cause this response? Thank you so much for any information you might have...or...where i could call to track down the contents. Could be something unique to/for her. Again, thanks for any help you can provide.

  • It's hydroseed. A landscaping mixture, basically grass seeds and fertilizer. I don't think it would be harmful in small quantities.
