How to spot the toxic algae that's killing dogs in the Southeast

I thought I'd share this, I know there are people on here from the southeast. The article does mention that toxic algae has been found in every state. I didn't know how quickly it can be fatal to dogs. I feel really bad for the people who have lost their dogs due to toxic algae. I have taken my dog to lakes and creeks and I'm going to be more careful.
