Blue Buffalo Recall 11/26/2015

Well folks, before you blame your Great Aunt Betty for that sick feeling after eating her semi appealing Thanksgiving dinner, check out what's in your 'Pet Treat Closet' first! If that  proves to be safe, then you may have a feasible lawsuit against your old Auntie and can take all her possessions before her demise! But if you are that type of person you probably should not own a dog!

Salmonella causes illness in pets and humans.  It is particularly dangerous for  the elderly  and young children. Wash your hands after touching and treats or foods for your animals.

Salmonella causes flu like symptoms in humans with nausea, vomiting, diarrhea (sometimes bloody) , abdominal pain and fever.

In pets you will see much of the same. Keep in mind that some of your dogs may be carriers only and not show any symptoms. So if you have more than one dog in your family and one of them is not showing symptoms it does not mean the others do not have salmonella. Contact your Veterinarian for treatment.
