Dog Salmonellosis or Salmonella

Dog Salmonellosis or Salmonella is a kind of food poisoning caused by eating foods contaminated with Salmonella typhimurium. It is not very known, but it evolves in two ways. In some cases, it is limited to intestinal activity; in others, it produces septicemia.

Located in the intestines, they produce different degrees of enteritis with or without petequial hemorrhages. In septichemical cases, you will notice pulmonary edema or meningitis and focalized necrotic hepatitis. The symptoms vary, from an asymptomatic course to serious septichemical cases with anorexia, fever, vomiting, diarrhea and eventually death. There can be abdominal pain accompanied by intestinal or hepatic lesions; as well as nervous signals and ictericia. In minor cases, there will only be a light diarrhea. Consult your veterinarian.
