Canine Seasonal Illness (SCI) 2017


* Cases seen in Clumber Park, Sherwood Forest – Nottinghamshire, Rendlesham Forest – Suffolk, Thetford Forest – Norfolk*

Do you like walking your dogs in the woods, especially in those amazing Autumn days? Then this one goes out to you.
Seasonal canine illness is a recent disease of dogs that seems to be active during the Autumn but, unfortunately, we do not know what causes it. Investigations are underway at this moment to see if it might be due to harvest mites but no concrete link has been found.

What to expect? It manifests between 24 and 72 hours and you might see:
• Vomiting
• Diarrhoea
• Abdominal pain
• Lethargy
• Loss of appetite
• Fever
• Shaking/Trembling

If you see these after walking in the woods and suspect it might be this, bring them over to us! Most cases have a good chance of recovering but it needs veterinary attention.
