Salmonella in people can cause vomiting , diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramping. It can mimic the flu and with the widespread flu epidemic here in MN that can be confusing since more severe symptoms also include muscle pain , eye irritation, & arthritis. Aso found in serious poisoning is arterial infections. Please see your doctor if you have touched these treats and are having symptoms.
Symptoms in dogs are similar to people with vomiting , diarrhea, (sometimes bloody), weakness,. abdominal cramping, decrease in appetite and fever. Please keep in mind if you have multiple dogs that some dogs may show no symptoms at all but they may be carriers of salmonella so just because only 3 out of your 5 dogs are sick it does not mean that Salmonella has not affected them.
