Water to be tested after reports of second dog dying after Sherwood Forest walks

THE ENVIRONMENT Agency is to test samples of water from Sherwood Forest after reports of dogs dying following walks there.

At least two dogs have died this autumn, while a eight died this time a year ago having walked there.

A spokeswoman for the agency said they planned to test whether poisonous blue green algae was present.

But Rainworth vet Janice Dixon said the cause of death for the dogs remained a mystery after taking the samples of nine dogs which had fallen ill.

She said: "We don't know what it is yet. It could be a toxin, fungus or algae. We can't rule anything out."

However Ms Dixon is concerned that the heavy amount of rain Nottingham has had in the last few days may dilute the algae.

One of the dogs which died this autumn is believed to have swam at Vicar Water near Clipstone.

The dogs that have been affected are Cocker Spaniels, Springer Spaniels and Cavaliers and were all in healthy condition before they fell ill overnight.

Their symptoms include vomiting, diarrhoea and excessive salivation.

Ms Dixon said: "Those breeds of dogs like sniffing along the floor. I have not had a dog that walks with their nose in the air brought in with these symptoms."

Ms Dixon added that if algae or fungus is responsible, controlling it would be very difficult.

Thanks for the up date. Our Schnauser is due for her booster at the end of October so we have brought it forward to next week before we head off for Sandringham, just in case. She likes to sniff along the ground as well

Sandringham did have warning notices posted up to the effect that most of the Dogs who had become Ill had been walked within the forest area. It wasnt just the CC site that was affected, the C&CC site also had similar notices, as did the notice boards at the visitor centre up near Sandringham house.

Hopefully things may have improved for this season, Sandringham is a very popular site with Dog walkers, some of them obviously breeders, who sometimes bring along small puppies with the Bitch they have just bred them from, I would have thought that these were at even greater risk of falling prey to this illness due to them not being old enough for their first vaccinations, so would hope that if there still is a problem this season the CC would warn its members well in advance.

Glad your dogs were fine Lyn, so was the Poppy Dog, but the AHT are asking dog owners to fill in the questionnaire whether their dog was affected or not.

This is happening in other places mostly wooded areas and happens mostly at the end of the summer. My little dog was affected at the end of August last year when staying on a site in Shropshire. It happens very fast and after being fine one day she was so ill overnight I couldn't wait to get her to a vet who put her on a drip and hospitalized her. To cut a long story short she was kept in for 3 days and we had a bill for nearly 800 (Thank goodness for insurance) I did report it to the Animal Health Trust and they think it is caused by a mite in the woods. I don't think water, ticks or fleas have anything to do with it. I do know we nearly lost our westie and I hope they can find the cause and stop it happening this year
