User Specific Prevention Procedures: Hunters

User Specific Prevention Procedures: Dog Owners

Many dog owners take their dog down to the water for a swim, to retrieve or to just have fun playing in the water. Dogs can pick up weeds, larvae, and other things that could be potentially harmful when you go to another body of water.
  • Check dog's body including feet, coat, and color for any visible mud, plants, or animals and remove.
  • Wash your dog with clean water.
  • Brush your dog's coat.
