PDSA info on blue-green algae and dogs

But what actually is blue-green algae and how do you spot it?

By now, you might have heard about blue-green algae and its dangers. But what actually is blue-green algae and how do you spot it?

PDSA have put together some information you should know.

Blue-green algae is perfectly natural, but can also be dangerous for our four-legged friends (and us)! Our dogs love to swim (mostly!) especially in hot weather and you might find them wanting to jump in every puddle and pond they see. But dogs don’t know that blue-green algae is dangerous for both them and us, so we need to be able to spot it and keep them safe.
