MYSTERY ILLNESS UPDATE

Forest Vets at Fordingbridge have released the following statement on their website –
“We have received reports of another suspected case of acute kidney injury occuring within the last week. This case is from outside the Latchmore Brook/Ogdens area. Investigations are ongoing to see if it is related to the previous incidents, and we will keep you informed as we get further information. As previously, please be extra-vigilant with your pets.”

NFDOG understands that the dog concerned in this possible case of the mystery illness was walked solely around the Verelea/ Picket Post area, from Smugglers Road car park. We would urge you to be over cautious with your dogs at the current time and regularly check them for signs of lesions appearing anywhere on their body or them seeming off colour. If at all concerned, seek advice from your vet.

The Animal Health Trust have produced a questionnaire for people who have walked their dog in the Ogdens area of the forest to fill in, it is available here http://www.aht.org.uk/cms-xmodnewsrss_detail/QUESTIONNAIRE_TO_HELP_WITH_INVESTIGATION_INTO_NEW_FOREST_DOG_DEATHS.html
