Big Thanks to Cristina Maldonado who is an advocate for our beloved dogs and cats who are dying or ill due to cyanobacteria toxicity in the waters.
I have been following her and all dog and cat related illnesses due to this poisoning and wanted to share just a handful of these heartbreaking posts below. A Go Fund Me Page has been set up to help these pets and the link is at the bottom of this post.
Christina shares with us a video she shot today "Caution to All Pet Owners" that I have posted at the bottom of this post. She did it after I posted this earlier.
Please watch and share with anyone you know who has dogs and near the water.
This happens very quickly for dogs and cats and you must get them to the vet quickly. When animals are exposed to this toxin, they may experience vomiting or diarrhea itching, panting or many other signs. If the cyanobacteria exposure is severe, it can be lethal and cause liver failure in animals. So you must act quickly. When I started seeing all of these stories about our sea animals dying by the 100,000's and now our beloved pets my immediate reaction was if it’s effecting the animals you wonder what effect it has on kids, people? I know the answer....

ANDREA'S STORY AND PRECIOUS BABIES
I spoke with this girl after I saw her pictures of her precious babies with health issues...... This is only one of many in Sarasota and every county affected by this disaster that I have seen and talked with.
Thank you Andrea..
“I am fortunate to be able to treat his symptoms with medication, but his quality of life has been affected, and I know our story is not unique. I urge our elected representatives and industry captains to come together to find a sustainable solution to remedy the current outbreak and prevent future outbreaks from occurring at this magnitude.”
My name is Andrea and I’m a resident of Sarasota. My son has a history of chronic respiratory problems. He regularly sees a pulmonologist, or lung doctor, to monitor his condition. Infants with chronic respiratory conditions are usually treated with medication given by a nebulizer (a breathing machine) or with an inhaler using a spacer with a mask. In the past, we’ve only had to treat him when he has an acute problem, such as an upper respiratory infection.
Recently, he began experiencing inflammation in his lungs and was prescribed an additional inhaler with steroids to take twice daily. While his pulmonologist can’t definitively say the inflammatory response is caused by the current outbreak of red tide / toxic algae in the Gulf, it certainly isn’t helping his condition.

Florida's Worst "red tide" toxic algae Eco Disaster in years killing turtles, dolphins manatees in Florida ~~ Info to help you HELP US
As many of you know, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer 10 yrs ago caused by Pesticides in the lawns and coming into my water system. I was given 3-4 months tops to live. At the time we used RoundUp on our lawns thinking it was safe. In addition, 4 dogs died in a 6 months period in our neighborhood. I researched alot to help me get rid of the cancer and was successful ~ removed Round UP and all toxic cleaners, using natural and organic food, hair, soap and everything else that contained harmful pesticides. I am now cancer free after 10 yrs.
Then last year my husband was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and we did Proton Therapy Treatment - he is now cancer free as of Oct 2, 2017. Since that time, we found the Beach walks helped us so much and walked 3-4 miles 3 times week on Siesta Key Beach and Turtle Beach. It was so serene and theraputic. I documented our weekly walks "Just another day in Paradise" because it is Paradise or USED to be.
On June 4, we were alarmed at water color changes and smells as well as we were NOT seeing our beautiful Pelicans anymore. As usual, I started researching after seeing very large sea animals dying on our beaches thru other social media sites, mainly Chris O'Neil's documentation of his finds https://www.facebook.com/captainchrisoneill https://www.facebook.com/TailChaserCharterServices/
He is a Captain of a Boat Charter in Englewood) and I want to publicly thank him for bringing this horrific info to so many in our Florida area, for without him I still may not know what has happened to our ecosystem and what is happening.
I will be sharing much on this until this is fixed as it is important to us all and NOT just in Florida and has been going on for a LONG TIME. If you care about your environment and water coming into your home, you just may want to research it for yourself. It has become an obsession for me since June 4. I have seen so much death of our sea animals at record numbers, it is scary. The very thing that helped us recover from Cancer ..walks on the beaches could possibly be making me sick as well as others. Unbelievable but true.
Below are some posts from some of my trusted sources that may help you understand this issue. Please do what you can to help - I would appreciate it as well as our sea animals that are dying in record numbers. My first thought when the sea animals were dying in record numbers, what is it doing to me? If you are in areas of Toxic Bacteria in our waters, stay out of the water - it is toxic in many ways.

As many of you know, I used the Z-Natural product from Harv Kauffman as soon as I found out about my cancer diagnosis years ago - he was nice enough to send me all the bottles I needed even though he had not launched the new brand yet. I am convinced It helped saved my life. He no longer makes it, so I have tried to find the best replacement to his incredible product.
