Seasonal Canine Illness

SEASONAL CANINE ILLESS (SCI)

The Mystery Dog Illness

What is Seasonal Canine Illness? 
Information obtained from Animal Health Trust  


http://www.aht.org.uk/seasonal_illness.html


At the moment – we don’t know exactly. We do know that cases of Seasonal Canine Illness (SCI) are generally seen between August and November, that it can affect any size, shape or sex of dog and that it causes dogs to become very ill, very quickly.
The most common clinical signs are sickness, diarrhoea and lethargy. If you suspect your dog is showing symptoms of SCI then please contact your vet immediately. 


Animal Health Trust has recently received reports of cases from the Rendlesham Forest Area.  They are appealing to owners to contact them if they have walked in this location to help them with their investigations.
Please contact www.aht.org.uk/sci_questionnaire.html
