    I am so resisting the urge to suggest it's mass hysteria...

    I’m pretty sure I saw an item on this in the Guardian too.

    Yup. And a dog dropped dead on Hampstead Heath yesterday - no kidding.
    All very worrying.

    That's it. My dog is staying in my bedroom, in isolation with me. I'll get a treadmill for walkies.

    Its not fabricated by the media though, the Norwegian veterinary institute and Norwegian food safety authority has not been able to find out what disease causes what looks like severe gut inflammations in the dead/sick dogs and so informed the media about it

    With some websites opening the link in a private window enabled people to read the link. Sadly though, more and more websites are finding out about that work around and are closing the loophole. But it is always worth a try.

    Another option, which again might not work, is to delete cookies just for the website you are trying to visit / read.

    I have read that more and more conventional dog foods contain very little meat or even no real meat, and the buying customer may not even be aware of it. Some people deliberately feed their dogs vegan dog food. I wonder if this is a factor?

    More likely something escaped from defrosting northpool grounds.

    Are you suggesting that viruses buried in the permafrost might with climate change be released to cause pandemics amongst populations that have no immunity?

    25 or so dogs dead so far, and only a few days from first sign of symptoms til death.

    Difficult to distinguish from symptoms that are normal this time of year and so very hard for veterinarians to separate the animals in acute danger from those who will recover on their own until it’s too late. Some dogs seem to survive with intensive care.

    Some bacteria have been found in several of the deceased dogs, but no clear clues yet. They think it probably spreads nose to nose, but no one really knows.

    Theres no permafrost in Oslo^^ It would be a weird place for an ancient virus to appear first

    The mysterious dog deaths have gotten a lot of media coverage. One of them is from the Norwegian broadcast cooperation today about an upcoming health register for animals. Such a register would have been very helpful in the ongoing investigation of finding the cause of these deaths.

    By 1. Oct. 300 animal hospitals will be part of this system. According to the article, Norway will be the first country with a health register for animals.
    But surely such data collection must already be in place in many countries?

    The article says it will help provide data, information about occurrence of diseases, track sources of diseases and monitor animal health in general.

    I wonder if such a register might have implications also for human medicine? For instance if it turns out there are more cases of borrelia among animals than we were aware of, it might be the same for people as well and might lead to better assessment for those with symptoms.
