BEIJING, CHINA - MARCH 19: (CHINA OUT) A pair of Chow Chow dogs, each worth over 100,000 yuan (about USD 12,406), are seen at a pet market on March 19, 2006 in Beijing, China. According to state media, with the country's pet population growing fast, analysts predict that the market potential for the "pet economy" in China could reach a minimum of RMB 15 billion (about USD 1.86 billion).

This is heartbreaking!

Toxic algae killed 3 North Carolina dogs. They swam in a pond last week.

Melissa Martin posted the loss on her Facebook page. She said that her goal since then has been to warn others of the dangers of “this deadly bacteria.”

Some blooms of blue-green algae can produce chemicals toxic to animals and people who drink the untreated water, according to NCDHHS. Officials say that the algae bloom may turn the water neon green, blue-green or reddish-brown, could cause a bad smell and taste in the water and sometimes forms a foam or scum on the water’s surface.

Please be careful where you and your pets swim.
