The Michelson Found Animals Foundation shares the following tips for keeping your dog safe: Inspect water before allowing your dog to swim. Bluegreen algae looks like green slime or paint on the surface of the water.
Do not allow your dog to drink stagnant water.
If your dog swims in stagnant water, immediately rinse him off with clean, fresh water.
Blue-green algae poisoning can be fatal. Seek immediate veterinary care if you notice the following symptoms after exposure to stagnant water: panting, diarrhea, excessive drooling, seizures, disorientation, vomiting or difficulty breathing.
