The Toxic blue-green algae is back in Lady Bird Lake and Lake Austin. Ingestion of the algae is toxic to both humans and dogs. Unfortunately, most dogs don’t make it to the vet in time to get assessed. The toxicity takes over their bodies extremely quickly. Here are some symptoms if you suspect your dog has ingested the toxic algae: “For dogs, blue-green algae can be deadly within a matter of hours or days after exposure. Symptoms can include excessive salivation, vomiting, fatigue, staggered walking, difficulty breathing, convulsions and liver failure.” -sourced from Austin American Statesman.
