Toxic algae kills 3 dogs hours after they played in North Carolina pond, owner says

Toxic algae killed three dogs in a matter of hours after they played in a North Carolina pond last week, their owner wrote on Facebook.

Melissa Martin of Wilmington wrote that around noon on Thursday her three dogs, Abby, Izzy, and Harpo, “contracted blue green algae poisoning” after swimming in a local pond.

“We are gutted,” she wrote in the post.

A similar algae related incident occurred near Austin Texas last week with the loss of 3 dogs after being in the Colorado River.
