over the last weekend my dad lost his cocker dog, it was only 18 months old and was coming on quite well.
we believe it was due to K9 seasonal illness.
My dad had been to one new shoot in Norfolk near Feltwell with the dog, he took two and was last Thursday, dogs were fine, until Saturday, all ok apart from the cocker, he was sick just after his morning walk and was left at home, instead of of going on the shoot, he was left with another dog in the kennel. All other dogs are fine.
My dad got back form the shoot around 4pm, dog was left at 8.45, between those times the cocker had died.
So people please keep an eye on your dogs.
Spoke to the vet, and the vet said it had all symptoms of this K9 seasonal illness, we were advised to disinfect all sleeping areas, all other dogs are ok.
