Distemper

This is an extremely sad post for me to write, but I hope I can at least prevent anyone else going through the same as we have.

We very very sadly had to have our puppy euthanased last night after she contracted Distemper. She had started her vaccines but became ill before the course was complete (at the time we did not know it could have been Distemper) so we had to hold off on the injections until her antibiotics were finished.

She was a strong dog, and only initially showed mild signs but it took hold and started to scar her lungs and eat away at her liver. I am absolutely devastated but I really really hope that all you dog owners in Dalyan and the surrounding areas keep you dogs vaccinated. I cannot express just how awful it is for them to go through this disease.

For those of you on holiday here, please do not encourage dogs and cats to your villa, it simply makes it a focal point for spread of disease.

RIP my wee pup :'(

Re: Distemper

I also wish we could get rid of the water buckets that are put out as they will only contribute to spread of (any) disease. I understand the good intention, but unfortunately they are not a good idea. Running water (of which there is plenty for the street animals) is fine. In the uk, vets and pet shops are discouraged from putting out water due to spread of more minor disease such a kennel cough.
