Deadly toxin fears after six dogs die in New Forest
A DEADLY toxin is feared to be killing dogs in the New Forest after at least six pets died a week after cutting their paws or legs at a popular beauty spot.
Another two dogs have been saved but a vet fears many more pets may have died and their owners and other vets might not have made the connection between a cut and kidney failure.
Vet Duncan Reavell is compiling as database of cases in a bid to track down the cause of the “cluster” of fatalities, which have all come after people walked their dogs at Latchmore Brook, near Ogdens car park near Fordingbridge.
Anyone who is concerned about their dog or whose pet has suffered a similar reaction should contact Mr Reavell on 01202 882101.
