adopted a nonpedigreed dog from a shelter or rescue organization, or
maybe your nonpurebred dog exhibits traits and behaviors indicative of

Don't let your pooch eat raw fish.
Salmon Poisoning Disease isn’t exclusively caused by the ingestion of raw salmon as the name might suggest. The condition can be caused by a dog consuming raw salmon, trout, steelhead, and other freshwater fish.
Cases of this disease are caused by the ingestion of fish caught in the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon and California).
Salmon Poisoning Disease is VERY serious and can be fatal! If left untreated 90% of dogs who show symptoms will not survive.
