Toxic blue-green algae blooms have been identified in all 50 states. Blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) is found in stagnant freshwater sources like ponds and lakes during warm weather.

The Michelson Found Animals Foundation shares the following tips for keeping your dog safe:

  • Inspect water before allowing your dog to swim. Bluegreen algae looks like green slime or paint on the surface of the water.
  • Do not allow your dog to drink stagnant water.
  • If your dog swims in stagnant water, immediately rinse him off with clean, fresh water.
  • Blue-green algae poisoning can be fatal. Seek immediate veterinary care if you notice the following symptoms after exposure to stagnant water: panting, diarrhea, excessive drooling, seizures, disorientation, vomiting or difficulty breathing.
