Three dogs die hours after swimming in pond with toxic algae

Three dogs died from toxic algae after swimming. Now their devastated owner is warning fellow dog lovers all over the country Owner: 3 Dogs Died Within Hours of Contact with Blue Algae

These pets died in the same region, but toxic algae can be found all over the United States - so dog owners throughout the nation need to be on the lookout.

8, Melissa Martin and Denise Mintz took their dogs to a pond in Wilmington, N.C. - and 15 minutes after leaving, their dog Abby had a seizure, CNNreported.

A North Carolina woman is urging pet owners to use caution while visiting neighborhood ponds after her three dogs suddenly died following an apparent run-in with toxic blue-green algae.

The third dog - a therapy dog named Harpo - fell ill and started to show signs of liver failure shortly after.

By midnight Friday, all three dogs had died, she said.

Dr. Anne Bergstrom says toxic blue-green algae can lead to liver problems and ultimately death but it is rare.

According to Pet Poison Helpline, ingestion of blue-green algae for dogs can lead to any of the following: vomiting; diarrhea; blood in stool or black, tarry stool; pale mucous membranes; jaundice; seizures; disorientation; coma; shock; excessive secretions (e.g., salivation, lacrimation, etc.); neurologic signs (including muscle tremors, muscle rigidity, paralysis, etc.); blue discoloration of the skin and mucous membranes; difficulty breathing; and death. We are gutted. I wish I could do today over.

Two North Carolina dog owners are raising awareness of the dangers of blue-green algae after their beloved canines were killed by the toxic organisms last week. "He came onto the floor and he was trying to wrap his paw around my arm and I just told him what a good boy he was and how he had done so much and we weren't going to let this happen for nothing".

Seven Network cameraman Paul Walker - who filmed the 21-year-old man being detained - said the man was "full of blood". He said he was known to police but "his history was unremarkable compared to the gravity of the crimes he committed".

'We are now on a mission to put signs at every body of water that can have this deadly bacteria, ' Martin said.

She continued: "Abby and Izzy had the most fun tonight chasing the ball and each other and rolling in the mud.

I would give anything to have one more day with them", Martin wrote in an August 9 public Facebook post. 'We need your prayers. Children and dogs are said to be the most vulnerable from the toxins.

In fact, exposure almost always leads to death.

Martin told CNN she didn't notice the algae at first, but her veterinarian told her that what appeared to be debris from flowers were blooms of cyanobacteria.

"Dogs will get in a body of water even if it looks or smells bad, including when it contains cyanobacteria", the CDC says.

The bacteria can also be harmful to humans too, so it goes without saying that you should also stay out.
