The Toxic Blue-Green Algae Responsible For Killing Dogs Around The U.S. Has Been Found In New York
Dog owners, beware! You may have heard about cyanobacteria. It’s common in the southeast United States, but can be found pretty much anywhere in the country. It’s bacteria that is produced by blue-green algae that is found in naturally occurring water sources, and it can cause liver failure and death if ingested by dogs. Symptoms are often not displayed until it is too late, so you definitely want to avoid this with pets and young children!
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Lisa loves animals and has dogs, rats, cats, guinea pigs, and snakes. Practically all of her free time is spent trapping and fixing stray cats. She also likes reading, playing Pokemon Go, and going to concerts. Her dog Cece is the best dog in the whole world.
