Dog owners in the UK have reported hundreds of cases of their beloved pets suffering from severe vomiting and diarrhea after enjoying a walk on the beach.
Researchers from the University of Liverpool suggest that a mysterious ‘outbreak’ which has caused unpleasant symptoms in hundreds of UK dogs could have been a strain of coronavirus.
Now, according to the researchers, the case could be similar.
“The 2022 GI outbreak was associated with a canine enteric coronavirus variant. Using data from participating laboratories, we again find seasonality in CECoV diagnosis that appears to broadly follow that of GI seasonality, with the proportion of submitted samples testing positive being highest in winter,” SAVSNET said in its report.
However, scientists have warned that “other pathogens could be involved” in the illness affecting British pets, noting that more case data is needed to be sure.
Regardless of the disease pattern, the researchers added, it is important that owners who have detected the aforementioned symptoms in their dogs “keep him away from other dogs (isolate) at least while he is sick. and preferably a few more days just in case. it’s contagious.”
In case of doubt concerning the health of a pet, it is necessary to contact its veterinarian immediately, recalls SAVSNET.
