Some Dangers When Taking Your Dog Fishing

Wednesday, August 12, 2020
posted by Jim Murphy

You love to fish and so does your dog. He goes with you on every trip. You’re just getting back to the dock with a good catch of salmon and trout. To reward your dog for being such a good companion, you throw him a fish.  Did you know that you may be killing him with your kindness?  Salmon poisoning disease found primarily in the northern pacific area of the U.S., and the pacific coast of Canada is often fatal for dogs.  The disease is caused when the dog eats raw salmon or trout contaminated with a parasite that contains the infecting organism.  Symptoms usually appear five to seven days later. Look for lack of appetite, fever, vomiting and diarrhea if you suspect that your dog may be infected.  Salmon poisoning disease is curable if caught early and the dog is treated with fluids, antibiotics and anti vomiting medication.  So instead of throwing him a raw fish, stick to his regular safe diet!
