Answer ( 1 )


    Yes, dogs can get salmonella from turtles. Turtles, including pet turtles, can carry salmonella bacteria in their intestines, and the bacteria can be shed in their feces. If a dog comes into contact with contaminated turtle feces or water, they can become infected with salmonella. This is why it’s important to practice good hygiene and prevent direct contact between dogs and turtles, especially for young children and individuals with weakened immune systems who may be more susceptible to salmonella infection.
