What Do I Do With The Food? Should I Be Worried About Myself or My Dog?
If your pet has been eating the recalled Aunt Jeni’s Home Made products, discontinue use immediately. Due to potential adverse reactions in dogs of any size, if you have been feeding your pet the potentially contaminated product, contact your veterinarian to ensure they know the situation. Then return the food to the original purchase location for a full refund. Proceed with sanitizing any food scoops, bowls, feeding toys, or storage containers that may have contained the food at one time.
What Do I Need To Know About Salmonella Poisoning?
Salmonella poisoning in dogs may come with various symptoms such as lethargy with fever, diarrhea occasionally accompanied by blood, and vomiting. Other less noticeable side effects can include appetite loss, abdominal pain, and fever.
If your animal has become infected but appears to be otherwise healthy, they can still be carriers of Salmonella. That means they can potentially infect other animals and humans they are around. So, you should always wash your hands after handling edible pet products such as food and treats to be safe.
If you know your pet has consumed the recalled product or is currently experiencing any of these symptoms, contact your veterinarian immediately.
