Wellington experts warn dog owners off "toxic" ponds
9:00am Tuesday 27th August 2013 in Mid Devon News
DOG owners are being warned of the dangers of allowing their pets to swim in public ponds and streams.
Experts at It’s All About Dogs in Houndsville, Wellington, say such waters could contain toxic blue-green algae.
Jo Francis said: “Blue-green algae is a major worry for dog owners using public waterways and it is important we are all aware of the risks.
“Dogs love to swim and it’s important that they are given the opportunity to build their confidence in water.”
