Heads Up for Dog Lovers

During a short but wonderful visit this past weekend with David’s daughter Allie, she alerted me to a deadly dog situation where she lives in Austin. Toxic blue green algae blooms in fresh water can cause dogs who swim in or drink it to die within 30-60 minutes. Only after several dogs died did the city post notices in known areas. I mentioned to her how I’ve found homeopathic remedies the fastest acting in dire emergencies and sent her the following link:

https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/blue-green-algae-risks-to-dogs/

The link shares supplies to have on hand, symptoms, as well as a protocol if you suspect your dog has had contact with toxic blue green algae. It also contains a map with a shocking number of US locations with known toxicity. Since I do quite a few appointments for clients facing the sudden death of a loved one — whether human or animal companion — I feel led to share this link. The fast acting blue green algae toxins often do not even allow time to get to a vet, let alone begin treatment there.

I cannot give medical advice, but as a medical intuitive, I’ll just say that the supplies, remedies and precautions listed in this link ring true to me. If you have a beloved canine friend, you might want to give it a read. Here’s hoping this information offers many more happy years with your loyal friend(s).

Much love,

Laura

    Yep, here in Port Townsend, WA this spring, a dog died quickly, within minutes, in closed Lake Anderson, a beloved local lake, closed for two years now from Algae bloom, the dog wasn’t even swimming submerged, just running around,ankle deep fyi, the area around the lake has been clear cut, sprayed repeatedly with glyphosate (round up) from helicopters, other lakes in clear cut area’s where spraying is going on are also developing toxic algae blooms. Sad!

  3. Oh, that IS very sad, Mitch! With how widespread this is, I felt there were glyphosate and other toxic runoff connections. It’s certainly not an isolated situation. 😦

  4. I saw this alert on the Google news headers that often pop up on my phone.. We had a similar situation with a lake here in the UK where the algae notices went up alerting dog owners and people to keep away.. Seems its getting more widespread.
    Thanks for the alert..
