Dog deaths and vomiting after beach walks


www.nzherald.co.nz

A Devonport vet has seen four cases of dogs with severe vomiting after being walked on a local beach

A dog died after visiting a Browns Bay beach last month, and a second death was reported on Cheltenham Beach in Devonport yesterday

Further north in the Rodney District, dead fish have been washing up on beaches and dead penguins have been found in the dunes around Mangawhai and Te Arai Pt

So much for the pleasant afternoon walk on the beach. The last thing you would expect is for you or your dog to get severley sick or even die!

Sounds much more serious than an algae bloom to me. Poison maybe?

Whatever it is must be pretty potent to cause these deaths.

Will be interesting to keep an eye on this to see if this spreads any more

Where I live people do not walk their dogs on the beach.
Why?
because they used to, but they never bothered to clean up the doggy science projects.
People got sick of it.
So sick of it dogs started to die.
Put two and two together.
Can you say rat poison in a chunk a hotdogs?
Blame the owners who think it’s nice to take your kids to the beech on the only Sunday you have off only to find miles and miles of stinky dog piles...
Now dog owners go to the beaches specifically for animals, and, the kids are able to run around on the sand without slipping in it.

peace

Weird! Also I swear I read something on here earlier about many fish in parts of the ocean getting sick and dieing, I bet this could be connected.

I'll post the link if I can find it.

Peace

Odd indeed. I do know it was fairly commn for hospitols to dump needles and medical waste near beaches..thats a fact, sad to say.l A friend fo mine year and years ago, was at beach with his g/f one day, and fouond a box.opened it, and this green liquid came out. He has witnesseed a few times, white samll truck pull up top the local beach, and see them dumping small bags tht had the biohazard symbol on them! that, obviously is from a hopstiol. Guess its cheaper to pay someone to dump it than how medical waste is suposed to be disposed of...
thats all i can think of, regrading these animals misfortunes..

Simple and to the point.
No mystery there.

Pet owners don't clean up after their dogs.

Non pet owners murder the dogs.

Sounds like the beaches have a 'human' problem.
