About Salmonella

Salmonella not only can harm pets that consume it, humans can also contract it by handling the affected product. This is why it is so important to wash your hands after handling dog food and treats.

If you have handled the product in question and are concerned about your health, here is what you need to look for. Symptoms of Salmonella poisoning include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. In more serious cases, Salmonella can cause arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and urinary tract symptoms. Be sure to visit your physician if you handled the product and are experiencing any of these symptoms.

If your pet has been exposed, monitor them for diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Also watch for a decreased appetite, and abdominal pain. If you notice these symptoms and your pet has consumed the recalled product, take them to the veterinarian immediately.
