Mysterious Canine Disease Kills More Dogs in US

In the United States, dozens of dogs have reportedly died in Oregon since August due to a respiratory disease of unknown cause. With notifications from the states of Colorado, Indiana, Illinois, Washington, Idaho and California, the number of cases across the country exceeded 200.

What are the symptoms of the disease?

The first symptom of the disease is "cough". A moderately severe chronic cough that lasts at least six to eight weeks can suddenly become severe and then turn into pneumonia within 24 to 36 hours. Some of the cases that respond little or not at all to antibiotics result in death.

What is the cause of the disease?

The cause of the disease is not yet known. No diagnosis could be made in the tests performed. A few dogs tested positive for M. Cynos, a known respiratory virus, but experts are confident it was not the cause of the deaths.

How does the disease spread?

It is stated that it is not yet known how the disease spreads. However, it is estimated that it can spread through dog contact with each other.

Is there a cure for the disease?

There is no medicine or vaccine yet for the treatment of the disease. Treatment is based on symptoms.

What should pet owners do?

Pet owners are advised to consult a veterinarian if their dogs have symptoms such as cough, sneezing, nasal and eye discharge and lethargy. They are also advised to reduce their pet's contact with other dogs, keep them away from others who appear sick, and avoid the use of shared water bowls.

Don't panic

Kurt Williams, Director of the Oregon State University Veterinary Laboratory, called on pet owners "not to panic" and said, "Make sure your dogs' vaccinations are complete and up to date."
