Keep your dog safe while swimming this summer! Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) are potentially life threatening algae growths that form in lakes and ponds. According to the New York Sea Grant, these toxins can poison people, household pets, waterfowl and livestock. Because HABs are increasing in many areas, the number of dog poisonings are also on the rise. Please read through the brochure, fact sheet and the NYSDEC- HABs Monitoring Link we have posted below!
