Re: For those dogs that swim in lakes and ponds...

Don't talk to me about bloody Cyno, this recent hot weather has caused a massive bloom of the stuff in my Marine tank!

I am spending about 20 minutes a night syphoning it out.

I've seen something before about stagnant water being harmful to dogs, but couldn't remember why. Thanks for the reminder1

That's a good bit of info, as only a few weeks ago we took our dogs to Richmond Park where they swam in the pond. They loved it, thank god, they are ok!

Thanks for this warning, you do tend to forget about the dangers in lakes etc. so this has been a good reminder.

a good point as this can be common in our fish tanks at home, another reason to always wash your hands after tank maintenance!

Re: For those dogs that swim in lakes and ponds...

Well actually infact--
My dog is a pussy and doesnt go in the lakes and ponds!
He kinda hovers and then ignores it!
It is very funny to watch though!

Re: For those dogs that swim in lakes and ponds...

my friend mentioned this morning that his dog had been unwell yesterday after eating some pond weed; high temperature, bloody diarrhea and not usual character. Is the risk there in this case do you think, and if so what should i tell my friend to do? (NB it was only weed eaten, and this was vomited by the dog shortly after)

Good post!

That's why I don't let my dogs swimming anywhere. When it comes to my dogs always their safety is my priority.
