Canine Carnival Canceled Over Dog Virus Fears
UPDATE: A local dog rescue group has cancelled all public adoption events due to the canine circovirus.
The group, Luv4K9s, announced the cancellations on their Facebook page.
They're concerned because the mysterious deadly virus is spreading in locations where several dogs are or have been.
MIAMISBURG -- A Canine Carnival scheduled for Sunday has been canceled because of a recent virus that is suspected in the illness or death of a number of dogs.
There have been four dog deaths in Ohio that could be linked to the virus. This dog illness is so mysterious that local veterinarians refused to talk to our news crews about it. However, our reporter, Annette Peagler found a local vet who has a better understanding of it.
"It was really only a virus that we've seen in pigs so something that's possibly crossed over now to the canines, that's really scary, that's something that we have no vaccines for," said Dr. Daniel Brauer.
Symptoms include vomiting, bloody diarrhea, weight loss and lethargy.
"Also what we call vasclinitous, which is inflammation of the vascular system which can even lead to scruffiness and necrosis of the skin, where the skin even starts to die and then fall off," said Dr. Brauer.
The City of Miamisburg had planned this ninth annual Canine Carnival for Sunday at Riverfront Park. Events planned included silliest pet tricks, dog/owner lookalike contest, parade of dogs, a wiener dog race and costume contest. However, since the four cases have been reported, organizers decided to cancel it because the illness could be spread at local parks.
The related 5k-9 Run, Walk and Wag will go on; however, city officials strongly recommend participants not bring their dogs. The 5k begins at 10 a.m., with registration underway at 9 a.m. with proceeds to benefit the Humane Society of Greater Dayton.
For more information, call the Miamisburg Parks and Recreation Department at 937-866-4532 or visit exploremiamisburg.com.
