Disease can lead to animal death
Salmonella are bacteria that can cause salmonellosis in both humans and dogs. In dogs, the disease usually begins three to five days after infection.
In dogs, "latent infections are mostly observed, and diarrhea, vomiting and fever can develop under the influence of favorable factors," explains the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Security (AGES) on its website.
According to experts, the disease can also lead to the death of the animal if the course is severe.
Freezing the product to kill the germs is useless: “Salmonella generally grow in a temperature range of 10 to 47 ° C and are not killed by freezing. Assured germ killing means heating to over 70 ° C for at least 15 seconds, ”writes AGES. (ad)
