    Dog Deaths in Southern Ohio Being Investigated

    Posted on: 10:41 pm, August 19, 2013, by Suzanne Stratford
    HAMILTON COUNTY, Ohio– What’s killing dogs in southern Ohio?

    An investigation is under way involving both the Ohio Department of Agriculture and The Ohio State University after a handful of dogs died in recent days.

    Three seemingly healthy family pets suddenly became violently ill and died from hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, known as HGE, and a fourth dog is also now sick.

    The cluster of sick canines all went to “The Pet Spot” in Norwood, a full service grooming and boarding facility.

    On Facebook, the owners said that all of their infectious disease tests have come back negative and the facilities been sterilized multiple times...

    There was a recent report about a virus similar to a pig circovirus found in dogs that possibly showed similar symptoms:
    PCV2-like Circovirus Found in Tissues of U.S. Dogs with Vasculitis and Hemorrhage

    PCV2 was found as a contaminant in a rotavirus vaccine a couple of years ago, but was not recalled since it is not considered to be a threat to humans.
