Pets with Salmonella may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting, according to the FDA. Some pets may show milder systems such as decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain, while other pets may display no symptoms. Pet owners are urged to contact their veterinarian if a pet has ingested the recalled product and shows these symptoms.
