Due to possible Salmonella poisoning Proctor & Gamble is recalling pet foods sold in the US although no salmonella outbreaks have been reported.

Keep in mind that  salmonella can spread to humans that touch the food and do not wash their hands. The young and elderly are particularly vulnerable to this. Watch for vomiting , diarrhea, fever, nausea, muscle pain and general flu like symptoms. More serious would be arterial infections, endocarditis (inflammation of he inner layer of the heart), arthritis, eye irritation, and urinary tract infections.

Pets will suffer vomiting ,diarrhea (sometimes bloody) decrease in appetite, lethargy, fever and abdominal pain.

Normal dog temperature is between 100.5  & 102.5 taken rectally.
