How does a Salmonella infection manifest itself in dogs?

Salmonella are bacteria that can cause salmonellosis in both humans and dogs. Puppies and young dogs are particularly vulnerable. In dogs, the disease usually begins three to five days after infection. As explained on the Thieme Group website, salmonellosis in dogs can lead to symptoms such as fever, anorexia (anorexia), vomiting, diarrhea and dehydration.

Serious illnesses can be fatal

According to the experts, the disease can also lead to the death of the animal if the course is severe. In addition, there is a risk of in-utero puppy infections or dead or weak puppies in infected, pregnant bitches. (ad)
