Canine Seasonal Illness- 2018

Just a reminder to all dog owners that September through to November is the risk time for Seasonal Canine Illness (SCI). The illness comes on very quickly, usually within 24 to 72 hours of dogs walking in woodland in autumn, and causes vomiting, diarrhoea and lethargy. These clinical signs are common and can be caused by lots of different things, but it is their onset within only a few hours of dogs walking in woodlands that is distinctive. Pets that receive prompt veterinary treatment go on to make a full recovery.

Despite work at the Animal Health Trust in Newmarket the cause still hasn’t been established. For more information on SCI, please visit
