Several dogs in southeastern states, including Georgia, have died after coming into contact with a toxic algae growing in ponds in lakes.

The blue-green algae thrive in summer sun and phosphorous runoff from fertilizers commonly used at this time of year. It can appear in lakes, ponds and even ditches. The algae are made up of toxic cyanobacteria.
