Advisory Note: Potentially toxic algae mats found
Dog owners are advised that potentially toxic algae mats have been observed at Lake Aviemore at the Waitangi boat ramp. Advice is to restrict dog access to this area and keep an eye out for black mats floating near the shore.
If your dog becomes ill within 30 minutes of being in contact with the water, please contact your vet as soon as possible. For more information go to ecan.govt.nz/dog-safety
