Signs of Salmon Poisoning
Salmon poisoning can be confused with other diseases. The signs can be similar to those your dog would show for parvo virus (i.e. vomiting and diarrhea with or without blood). Signs usually begin 5-7 days after eating an infected raw salmon but delays up to 30 days have been reported. Other signs besides vomiting might be a fever, weakness, swollen lymph nodes and rarely a nasal and or eye discharge.
This is very serious disease which if left untreated has a mortality rate of 50% to 90%. The disease progresses quickly and after the signs manifest can be fatal in 7-10 days. Therefore, it is important to treat these patients as soon as possible. Early treatment can have a profoundly positive impact on recovery.
Prevent Your Pet From Raw Salmon
Prevention of Salmon Poisoning means eliminating exposure to raw salmon. Please don’t feed raw salmon to your dog. Raw salmon is for your lips only – keep it away from your canine companions!
