How to Spot the Toxic Algae That's Killing Dogs

Dog owners in the Southeast are spreading the word about the dangers of contaminated water following the deaths of their beloved pets.
In Wilmington, North Carolina, three dogs died after frolicking in a pond, while another succumbed after a swim in Lake Allatoona, Georgia. A common enemy likely led to the deaths of all four dogs: liver failure brought on by ingesting water contaminated with toxic blue-green 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.
