Dogs found sick after swimming in Lake Travis

The Lower Colorado River Authority is currently testing samples of the Hudson Bend area of Lake Travis after reports of sick dogs were linked to the area.

The organization has found four cases of dogs that got sick after swimming in the area and took action by extracting water samples on Monday.

Until the LRCA gets results, which they expect to have by Thursday, the organization recommends that people keep their dogs out of that section of the lake. No sick dogs have been reported in any other area of Lake Travis.

Look for more updates on the LRCA's website or Facebook page.
