seeing a worning round my local loch has reminded me to post this, blue green algae is found in stagnant water and sometimes flowing water if the source comes from a stagnant pool. it can make dogs and people very ill or in worst cases some die.

so keep your dogs away from still water and keep your eye out on walks to see if their are any wornings up about local ponds, streams etc

Oh, they had this sign up at our country park on Monday, but only by the duck feeding area.and on the other side of the reservoir, a woman was still encouraging her dogs into the water. I presumed it must only be a problem for people. I hope those dogs were okay.

Thanks, Kendal.

I was in Richmond Park the other day and there are warning signs all round the ponds to keep dogs away from them because of blue/green algae. I had to put Dexter on a lead as he would have headed straight for the ponds.

My uncle's dog became very ill after going into water that had blue green algae and there were no warning signs. It was terrible and they petitioned for signs to be put up. Thankfully their dog pulled through though.
