There have been a spate of recent cases of gastro-enteritis in the summer
of 2015. No pathogens have been identified specifically in these cases, but many have needed hospitalisation and intravenous fluids. Fortunately, all have gone on to make a full recovery!
We would like to remind dog owners of the dangers of letting their pets drink from standing or still water in late summer. Algal poisoning is not common but very serious!
We remain on the alert for cases of Alabama Rot, (also known as New Forest Disease or Sandringham Disease). Fortunately very rare, but we have seen one case in the last 12 months.
