ILLNESSES AFFECTING DOGS

Media reporting of illness affecting dogs


WRS are aware of reports of an unknown illness affecting dogs in the UK.

Worcestershire in particular has been mentioned by the BBC as having an incident reported.

  • Avoid letting your dog go into water whilst outside. It is believed that all cases where dogs have died had been in water;
  • If your dog has been in water, our advice is to bathe the animal using a mild or dog specialist shampoo, as dogs that had died had not been bathed straight away
  • If you are concerned about your dog's health in any way seek veterinary advice.
