Human symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Salmonella also can cause arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and urinary tract symptoms.
Dogs who are sick with a salmonella infection may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some dogs will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain.
