Authorities have been struggling to get to the bottom of a spate of dog deaths involving an unidentified disease.
The illness, which has so far claimed the lives of at least 20 dogs, is believed to be concentrated in the Norweigan capital however cases have also been reported in Bergen, Trondheim and Nordland.

Spokesman Ole-Herman Tronerud of the Norwegian Food Safety Authority has described the disease, which causes bloody diarrhea and vomiting, as "very serious for a dog."

"But we don't know yet whether this is contagious or just a series of individual cases," he said.
The Norwegian Veterinary Institute has reportedly discovered two unidentified strains of bacteria in some of the deceased dogs however it is unclear whether or not these are responsible.

In the meantime, dog owners in the region are advised to be vigilant.

"To have healthy and great Norwegian dogs die so quickly is naturally serious," said NVI emergency and safety director, Jorun Jarp. "It's a very special situation I haven't been involved in before."

Poor dogs. I hope they find the route of the problem swiftly.

I wonder if it's something they've all eaten, like a bad batch of dog food.

We stopped buying ANY kind of food or snacks made in China.  The stuff was toxic and they made no effort to clean it up.

Latest.... "A mysterious disease that has been killing scores of dogs in Norway has now claimed the life of a Swedish pooch. " "Of the 43 deaths, 15 autopsies have been performed and found the bacteria Providencia alcalifaciens festering in 12 of the carcasses, but it is too early to confirm this as the cause.
