I live in a country setting and dogs are a mainstay here. I have six dogs and three puppies left since two days ago. Two puppies and one adult dog showed up dead. No evidence of violence, only something internal. My neighbor said it might be poisoning. Who knows?
I am seeking some insight to why this may have happened. I don't have the money to do the research needed. Maybe someone here has had experience. Any valid reply is welcome. Thank You! I would like to prevent this from happening to the rest of my dogs.

I would call your local animal shelter/humane society and ask them for advice.

So sorry to hear about your loss.

I agree with the likelihood of poisoning. Antifreeze is a very common culprit. Rat poison is another. Both can be found in all kinds of common settings.

Do you control your dogs' water source?

i am owned by a dog, dont really consider myself a dog owner....
so my heart goes out to you and im sorry for your loss.
im afraid you havent really given enough information in your OP.perhaps you could add some details and flesh out exactly the circumstances of this dreadful event.

where did you find the dogs?

was there any symptoms or did you find them dead already?

and anything else you can offer..

thanks in advance

For help you may want to most as much info as possible.
Where do live? Did the dogs show any signs of sickness?
Seen anything suspicious? Piss off any neighbors lately?
Any reports of rabid/sick animals in your neighborhood?

antifreeze is a big one that gets dogs and cats alot and all it takes is a couple tea spoons . and they will die 3 days later the systems are as follows firts the animal will act as its drunk that last for 5 or 6 hours then it will seam ok for 2 day but during that time the poison * Drunken behavior
* Euphoria/Delirium
* Wobbly, uncoordinated movement
* Nausea/Vomiting
* Excessive urination
* Diarrhea
* Rapid heart beat
* Depression
* Weakness
* Seizures/Convulsions/Shaking tremors
* Fainting
* Coma

The only really oves one is the drunken behavior the rest you may very well miss untill the dog is found dead and all this takes is a leaky radiator. the antifreeze has a sweet smell and teast to a dog cat or child .
and like i said 2 tea spoons is all it takes for a small dog and 3 table spoons for a large dog or human so be sure theres no antifreeze open or dripping from the car anywhere .
wile i cant say this is what kill these dogs its the most common one and even used by people who dont like you to kill a dog or by someone wanting to rob you but gets rid of teh dog first

So sorry to hear about this.

A few years back, there was a string of dog killings in my area. People were leaving 'tennis ball bombs' in the dogs parks, as well as meat that had been poisoned. Manny dogs were killed, and as far as I know, they never figured out who did it or why.

I hope if this was malicious, you get your hands on the culprit.

My condolences, I too am owned by 3 dogs. I hope the local vet or shelter will help you find out if they were poisoned and by what. If they could test even one of the dogs, it would likely be the same for the other two. Is there any animal advocates in the area, they may help pay for testing.

Maybe it's a virus and you should get the other dogs checked out.

Hi, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, I have dogs as pets too and I know how much they mean to the owner.

About the problem though - sounds maybe obvious but have you been to a vet? I appreciate you say you dont' have money for research but I know that here in the UK there is a scheme called PDSA which gives help with vet bills for people who can't afford it. Is there such a thing where you live?

Were there any symptoms that you noticed? Did all the dogs die at the same time? I'm wondering if it could be something like distempter - are the dogs inoculated?

How old were the dog and puppies? If the puppies were really young it may be just that they were weak and couldn't survive, but that wouldn't explain the adult dog.

If it's not too hard to talk about, could you explain a little more about the circumstances- where they were found, etc?

Hope you find answers soon, it must be terrible to have something like this happen and not know why.

I am seeking some insight to why this may have happened.

You're asking the impossible. How can we know *why* this happened; we don't even know you.

Ask us *how* this happened, well, you've already got some answers.

Anything else, we need a lot more information.

Have you thought about Parvo? It can infect the ground as well and when the dog licks his feet he can get it. Also I forgot the name of the illness but it comes from eating mice, especially the head, it happened at a kennel I worked at and it killed a few dogs. I wish I could remember the name of the illness though.Anyway, good luck.

Please go over all food source, what you feed them save dry food bags for later study, water everything, rat poison can they get into that? Look for any not let dogs out without YOUR supervision. also rake yard i think you say comb yard for evidence of poison,,,

This is horrible can we have more information? I think could be poison not sure yet and never a conclusion OK

very sorry for this loss

Parvo can kill dogs really quickly and lives in the soil. If you have remaining dogs, you need to move them away from the location that the other dogs were in. I don't know how long that Parvo can live in the soil, but I think it can survive a long time. I had a dog that died of that and years later we chained another dog in the same area of the yard and it died too. So I think there might be something you have to put into the soil to kill it.

If the other dogs do not eat, have diarhea or vomiting, they will do that for one day and be dead the next day.

There has been an outbreak of Parvo in our area and many dogs died of it. It can be cured but you need to get the dog to a vet quickly enough.

Combining Parvo with hot temperatures means a dog will vomit or have diarhea and basically die of dehydration very quickly.

This is a common thing where im from. Usually criminals poison dogs just before they decide to rob your home, so be on the lookout for that, we have had many instances where the whole neighborhood's dogs were poisoned. But 3 dogs sounds a bit dodgy, something is definitely going on. You should check for meat or some kind of food lying around in your yard, and also if this was poison, the poison is also dangerous for you. The poisons people listed is a possibility, i want to add glass to the list. Pieces of glass in meat, and a dog will eat that. You should keep your dogs inside the house at night or out of reach of people passing by your house. Losing loving pets like that is just terrible

I am sorry for your losses.

If rat poison is involved, the dogs may show signs of hemmoraging, blood in stool or vomiting blood, possibly bleeding from other orifices.

Dogs can also be killed 'on the sly' by feeding them raw hamburger that has been mixed with crushed glass. Again see if you can find any bloody stools around.

The only way you will find out is to have a autopsy done on one of the dogs.

If you find a dog that has drunk anti freeze the only thing that might save them is drinking alcohol.

Keep the dog drunk for 72 hours.

In SA alot of dogs are killed by robbers every year. It is done by a chemical (made only in the USA), used for killing a worm that lives in the soil. I forgot what the name is, but the streetname is "2 step". 2 Granules killes a dog in 15 minutes. Maybe someone in your area used it in their soil. I'll try to find the name.

Ok I have found the name of the pesticide, it is called Aldicarb! Aldicarb, like I said is only manufactured in America.

I hate dogs. But I think that cruelty to them is a bit low.

I would look at someone nearby doing this on purpose to you. MAybe someone is being spiteful. I would imagine that someone is adding something to something that your dogs come into contact with. Anti-freeze like someone said is a popular way as is pesticides. good luck with the others.
