With all the rain we have gotten, there are a lot of flooded areas around the area, especially by the Big Sioux River, which is where Spencer Dog Park is. It’s a good reminder to not let your dogs play in the flooded waters.

Melissa, CVT at Horizon Pet Care in Brandon, SD says, “The biggest concern with dogs swimming in [flooded] water is that they can get intestinal parasites. The most common being Giardia. Giardia causes bloody diarrhea in dogs. This particular parasite is transmissible to humans especially children. Another concern with swimming in this water is the potential for dogs to be cut on their paws or legs by objects under the surface”. There are a lot of other concerns about dogs going in flooded water, but these are the big issues.
