Lucky terrier Tally survives brush with mystery Forest toxin that has killed 12 other dogs

Daily Echo: Staffordshire bull terrier Tally. Staffordshire bull terrier Tally.

HE may not know it but four-year-old Tally is one of the lucky ones.

The Staffordshire bull terrier is among only a handful of dogs to have survived a brush with a mystery toxin that has killed at least 12 other dogs in the New Forest.

Tally was taken ill after being exercised near his Tiptoe home but miraculously pulled through.

As reported in the Daily Echo, another dog from the same part of the Forest died after being infected by the toxin, which causes acute kidney failure.

A similar outbreak began this time last year, although most of the cases occurred in the Fritham and Fordingbridge area.

Now Tally’s owner, planning consultant Jerry Davies, 50, has spoken out in the hope of alerting other dog owners to the potential new danger.

He said: “I wasn’t aware it was still an issue.

“Tally became ill after going for a walk near Marley Mount. He developed a mark on his paw followed by lesions on his legs, stomach and face. He also went off his food.”

The dog was taken to a veterinary hospital at Anderson Moores, the Winchester practice that has treated many of the other poisoned pets.

At one stage Mr Davies was warned that Tally might have to be put down unless his condition improved within 24 hours.

“After ten days he started eating again, which was when he turned the corner,” he said. “He was very fit and had the stamina to fight it off, which is probably why he survived.

“Tally is much more subdued than he used to be and doesn’t have as much energy. But he’s getting stronger all the time.”

New Forest District Council is one of the organisations that is trying to identify the toxin.

A spokesman said: “While we’re aware that previous cases occurred at a similar time last year the underlying cause remains unknown.”

Could the mystery be a mutation of the spirochete bacterium ?




NASTY INFECTIOUS DISEASES YOU WANT TO AVOID - LEPTOSPIROSIS

This is a bacterial disease CHARACTERIZED BY A SKIN RASH and flulike symptoms caused by a spirochete bacterium excreted by rodents. Also known as autumn fever, there are about 100 cases and a few deaths reported in the United States each year

Leptospirosis



LEPTOSPIROSIS.. FROM WIKIPEDIA,

Leptospirosis (also known as Weil's syndrome, canicola fever, canefield fever, nanukayami fever, 7-day fever, Rat Catcher's Yellows, Fort Bragg fever, black jaundice, and Pretibial fever is caused by infection with bacteria of the genus Leptospira and affects humans as well as other animals.

Leptospirosis is among the world's most common diseases that transmits from animals to people (zoonosis). The infection is commonly transmitted to humans by allowing water that has been contaminated by animal urine to come in contact with unhealed breaks in the skin, the eyes, or with the mucous membranes. OUTSIDE OF TROPICAL AREAS, LEPTOSPIROSIS CASES HAVE A RELATIVELY DISTINCT SEASONALITY—MOST CASES OCCUR IN SPRING AND AUTUMN

Leptospirosis is caused by a spirochaete bacterium called Leptospira spp. At least five important serotypes exist in the United States and Canada, ALL OF WHICH CAUSE DISEASE IN DOGS:

Icterohaemorrhagiae

Canicola

Pomona

Grippotyphosa

Bratislava

Leptospirosis is transmitted by the urine of an infected animal, and is contagious as long as the urine is still moist. Rats, mice, and moles are important primary hosts—but a wide range of other mammals including dogs, deer, rabbits, hedgehogs, cows, sheep, raccoons, opossums, skunks, and certain marine mammals carry and transmit the disease as secondary hosts. In Africa, the banded mongoose has been identified as a carrier of the pathogen, likely in addition to other African wildlife hosts. Dogs may lick the urine of an infected animal off the grass or soil, or drink from an infected puddle.

HOUSE-BOUND DOMESTIC DOGS HAVE CONTRACTED LEPTOSPIROSIS, APPARENTLY FROM LICKING THE URINE OF INFECTED MICE IN THE HOUSE. THE TYPE OF HABITATS MOST LIKELY TO CARRY INFECTIVE BACTERIA ARE MUDDY RIVERBANKS, DITCHES, GULLIES, AND MUDDY LIVESTOCK REARING AREAS WHERE THERE IS REGULAR PASSAGE OF WILD OR FARM MAMMALS.THE INCIDENCE OF LEPTOSPIROSIS CORRELATES DIRECTLY WITH THE AMOUNT OF RAINFALL, MAKING IT SEASONAL IN TEMPERATE CLIMATES AND YEAR-ROUND IN TROPICAL CLIMATES. LEPTOSPIROSIS ALSO TRANSMITS VIA THE SEMEN OF INFECTED ANIMALS


INCUBATION (TIME OF EXPOSURE TO FIRST SYMPTOMS) IN ANIMALS IS ANYWHERE FROM 2 TO 20 DAYS. IN DOGS, LEPTOSPIROSIS MOST OFTEN DAMAGES THE LIVER AND KIDNEY. In addition, recent reports describe a pulmonary form of canine leptospirosis associated with severe hemorrhage in the lungs—similar to human pulmonary hemorrhagic syndrome. Vasculitis may occur, causing edema and potentially disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). Myocarditis, pericarditis, meningitis, and uveitis are also possible sequelae.

Leptospirosis should be strongly suspected and included as part of a differential diagnosis if the sclerae of a dog's eyes appear jaundiced (even slightly yellow). The absence of jaundice does not eliminate the possibility of leptospirosis, and its presence could indicate hepatitis or other liver pathology rather than leptospirosis. Vomiting, fever, failure to eat, reduced urine output, unusually dark or brown urine, and lethargy are also indications of the disease.

Dog quarantine tests for bacterial infections and climate change..


In recent times bacterial infections Alabama rot and Lyme ( Connecticut USA) disease have both presumably found there way to the New Forest via America..

Given climate change is time to tighten up the relaxed dog quarantine laws and have more tests ?


P.S. Lucky terrier Tally may have survived Alabama rot but is he totally cured?..

Tally maybe capable of passing on the infection to other dogs via his urine.

Rats, mice, and moles are important primary hosts—but a wide range of other mammals including dogs, deer, rabbits, hedgehogs, cows, sheep, raccoons, opossums, skunks, and certain marine mammals carry and transmit the disease as secondary hosts. In Africa, the banded mongoose has been identified as a carrier of the pathogen, likely in addition to other African wildlife hosts.[5] Dogs may lick the urine of an infected animal off the grass or soil, or drink from an infected puddle. HOUSE-BOUND DOMESTIC DOGS HAVE CONTRACTED LEPTOSPIROSIS, APPARENTLY FROM LICKING THE URINE OF INFECTED MICE IN THE HOUSE. THE TYPE OF HABITATS MOST LIKELY TO CARRY INFECTIVE BACTERIA ARE MUDDY RIVERBANKS, DITCHES, GULLIES, AND MUDDY LIVESTOCK REARING AREAS WHERE THERE IS REGULAR PASSAGE OF WILD OR FARM MAMMALS.THE INCIDENCE OF LEPTOSPIROSIS CORRELATES DIRECTLY WITH THE AMOUNT OF RAINFALL, MAKING IT SEASONAL IN TEMPERATE CLIMATES AND YEAR-ROUND IN TROPICAL CLIMATES. LEPTOSPIROSIS ALSO TRANSMITS VIA THE SEMEN OF INFECTED ANIMALS INCUBATION (TIME OF EXPOSURE TO FIRST SYMPTOMS) IN ANIMALS IS ANYWHERE FROM 2 TO 20 DAYS. IN DOGS, LEPTOSPIROSIS MOST OFTEN DAMAGES THE LIVER AND KIDNEY. In addition, recent reports describe a pulmonary form of canine leptospirosis associated with severe hemorrhage in the lungs—similar to human pulmonary hemorrhagic syndrome.[11][12] Vasculitis may occur, causing edema and potentially disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). Myocarditis, pericarditis, meningitis, and uveitis are also possible sequelae.[2] Leptospirosis should be strongly suspected and included as part of a differential diagnosis if the sclerae of a dog's eyes appear jaundiced (even slightly yellow). The absence of jaundice does not eliminate the possibility of leptospirosis, and its presence could indicate hepatitis or other liver pathology rather than leptospirosis. Vomiting, fever, failure to eat, reduced urine output, unusually dark or brown urine, and lethargy are also indications of the disease. http://en.wikipedia. org/wiki/Leptospiros is ,, As posted previously... http://www.dailyecho .co.uk/news/10933995 .Another_dog_killed_ by_mystery_poison[/p][/quote]Good news mystery solved... BBC South today reports that all the dogs tested showed symptoms of a bacterial infection known as Alabama skin rot. time will tell if it's in anyway related to the Leptospirosis bacterium.. ,,,[/p][/quote]Dog quarantine tests for bacterial infections and climate change.. In recent times bacterial infections Alabama rot and Lyme ( Connecticut USA) disease have both presumably found there way to the New Forest via America.. Given climate change is time to tighten up the relaxed dog quarantine laws and have more tests ? P.S. Lucky terrier Tally may have survived Alabama rot but is he totally cured?.. Tally maybe capable of passing on the infection to other dogs via his urine. ,,, ,, Dan Soton

My Dog was put to sleep on 2/2/2014. There seems to have been a few cases. Please go to my facebook page:

I am using it to collate all information. I have heard of 5 cases in the last fortnight.
