Blue green algae warning: What does blue green algae look like, is it dangerous to dogs?

How can I protect my dog from blue-green algae?

Keep your dog away from lakes and ponds that you know, or suspect may, contain blue-green algae.  Don’t let dogs drink from or swim in water that may have blue-green algae in. Because the wind often blows blooms of algae to the edges of ponds or lakes, higher concentrations are more likely to be present in the parts of the water your dog may drink from.

Summary

  • Blue-green algae can be toxic to dogs. Call your vet immediately if you suspect poisoning.
  • Don’t let your dog drink from or swim in water containing blue-green algae
  • If you think you have spotted blue-green algae in water, report it to the Environment Agency
