doggie Illness shuts down shelter

This is kinda scary…

The Caldwell County Animal Control shelter is temporarily closed to the public until an unknown K-9 illness affecting the dogs can be identified and treated.

Symptoms of the illness include drooling, neurological problems and seizures.

Sadly, eight dogs have already been severely infected and euthanized as a result, with 10 other dogs euthanized due to their proximity to the sick dogs.

"We are working closely with Dr's Dan and Beth Jones of Lenoir Veterinary Hospital to determine the cause of the illness. We have sent blood and spinal samples to the North Carolina state lab for testing and so far have confirmed that the disease is not rabies,"

said Greg Greene, Director of Caldwell County Animal Control.

The only good news: the illness does not appear to affect cats.
