Delphos, OH -
State officials are warning dog owners to keep a watchful eye out for symptoms of a mysterious illness that has claimed the life of four dogs in the buckeye state. The Division of Animal Health is investigating the deaths that started with symptoms of vomiting, bloody diarrhea, weight loss and lethargy.
The problem with the mystery illness is that the warning signs often mimic symptoms of other illnesses. Veterinarians at the Delphos Animal Hospital are asking all of their customers to take precautions and keep their dogs away from other dogs when they show similar symptoms.
Officials are asking owners to seek medical care for their dogs if they display any of the warning symptoms.
