Dog owners cautioned to avoid Pulau Ubin after stray dogs infected by Canine Distemper

When: 2012-08-17 13:21:00 -0700
Where: Ubin Island, Singapore


Details:

Dog owners in Singapore are being advised to avoid taking their dogs to Pulau Ubin (Ubin Island) after several stray dogs have been found dead as result of canine distemper virus.

The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) is also urging dog owners in the area or who plan to visit the island to vaccinate their dogs against the virus. Canine Distemper is highly contagious and is spread from dog to dog by contact with saliva, urine or faeces, as well as objects that become contaminated with bodily fluids of infected animals.

Vaccination ensures immunity from the deadly disease which attacks a dog's lungs and internal systems.
