ALBANY, GA (WALB) - It's not just hundreds of humans who have been sickened by Salmonella linked to the Blakely plant.

At least one brand of dog treats has also been recalled and could put dogs at risk. PetSmart brand Great Choice dog biscuits have been recalled.

Veterinarians say just like humans, dogs can be at risk for Salmonella. Vets say, most adult dogs can handle the bacteria, but puppies or immune compromised dogs would be at risk. Like humans dogs can show symptoms of Salmonella poisoning.

"Decreased appetite, fever, lethargy, weight loss, vomiting or diarrhea if they do ingest these peanut butter treats," said Dr. Ivy Chupp, Bush Animal Clinic.

Veterinarians say owners who may have given their dogs any of the recalled items like cookies or crackers could also be at risk.
