Local vets issue poison warning after sudden dog deaths

Local vets are issuing a warning for pet owners to beware of poison after four dogs died suddenly in the Corcullen area over the weekend.

The Barna and Moycullen Veterinary Clinics Facebook group issued a warning that “There seems to be some type of TOXIN / POISON affecting dogs in the CORCULLEN/ DROM area of Galway this weekend.”

“There have been four deaths of dogs in different households all walked in the same are between the cross and the football pitches.”

“Dog owners should avoid this area for now as as yet cause unknown”, it was cautioned.

Symptoms of the issue include increased temperature and panting, followed by sudden death.

“Please be vigilant and contact your vet if you have any concerns about your dog if you have walked them in this area yesterday or today.”

People who may have seen anything suspicious in this area are urged by the vets group to contact gardaí.
