Pets with Salmonella may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting, according to the FDA. Some pets may exhibit milder systems such as decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain while other pets may show no symptoms at all. The FDA recommends that pet owners contact their veterinarian if a pet has consumed the recalled product and exhibits these symptoms.
