A mystery disease is estimated to have killed dozens of dogs in Norway in the last few days with officials unsure what is causing the spread of the illness.

The Norwegian Food Safety Authority confirmed another six cases of dogs falling ill on Saturday, of which two had already died.

The illness has struck pets across the country from the northern province of Nordland to cities like Trondheim Bergen and Oslo, where the majority of cases have been reported.

All of those to have died experienced the same symptoms of vomiting and diarrhoea.

Autopsies of the first three dogs to have died is yet to prove what is causing the sickness, with veterinarians considering the potential for viral, bacterial, fungal and parasitic causes.

1. Not much more at link

I wonder if they were all eating the same dogfood. Gawd knows there's been enough contamination the last several years that killed many dogs.

6. Dogs are too smart to vape.

Unlike far too many humans.
