Pelletized fertilizer is really only considered pet safe if you follow certain precautions such as being sure to give your grass a good long watering to allow the fertilizer to sink into the soil. Most websites advise waiting 24-48 hours after fertilizer application before allowing your pet back onto the lawn. I would recommend reading the instructions that came with your fertilizer for more specific information on how to safeguard your pets.
