Late Summer Advisory: Blue-green algae dangerous to pets and livestock

Due to the significant high temperatures we've had in Central Kentucky, blue-green algae blooms create high concentrations of neurotoxins. These neurotoxins in slimy, scummy water can cause animal seizures or liver failure in a matter of days. There is no antidote, so early decontamination can mean the difference between life and death. Please prevent blue-green algae poisoning, by following these preventive guidelines published by University of Kentucky Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory. ~Dr. Pat and Dr. Rachel

Dr. Pat Turns and associate Dr. Rachel Cohn invite you to call or stop by Doerr Animal Clinic to meet the doctors and find out more about the preventive, wellness checks, emergency, grooming and boarding services we provide for Louisville, KY pets and their owners.
