Urgent ‘toxin’ warning issued to avoid some UK beaches as over 150 dogs fall ill


An urgent warning has been issued to pet owners after dogs fell ill following walks on the beach.

Dog walkers have been raising their concerns on Facebook after 150 dogs reportedly fell ill in the Scarborough area.

In a post shared to the public, the Best Days Out in Yorkshire and Yorkshire Coast Pet Care pages both expressed concerns over the recent incidents.

Brogan Proud a veterinary nurse who runs the Yorkshire Coast Pet Care, said: “I work within several practices up and down the North East coast and we have recently been inundated with dogs coming off the beaches with vomiting and diarrhoea.

“Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be any correlation other than contact with the beach so maybe ensure they don’t eat anything on the beach and wash them off if they’ve been to the beach in case it is a toxin or similar.

“Personally until the local authorities have got to the bottom of it I would not recommend taking your pets on the beach for the foreseeable future.

“I have been in touch with governing bodies and they are currently looking into it.

“If your dog is showing symptoms please make the local authorities aware as well as seeking veterinary attention should your pet need it.”

She also followed up with further information for concerned pet owners, and revealed that dogs and birds could spread the illness in their faeces, reports Yorkshire Live.

“So I wouldn’t be surprised to see pets catching this just being near the beach ie the lines or cliffs etc, it’s hard to avoid all these places its more about being careful and vigilant with your pets,” she said.

“It’s currently unknown what it is and what is causing it – if it comes from the dogs eating stuff on the beaches or going into the water.”

In response to the warning, countless dog owners have come forth to share the stories of their pets being taken ill after contact with the beach.

One user, Shelly Anderson said: “My six-month-old Lab has had horrendous diarrhoea for the past four days , thankfully he’s now almost back to his usual self.“

“I was going to contact the vets today if there was no improvement. We have walked on both the beach at Robin Hoods Bay and the railway line at Bay / Thorpe .”

Anne Lavery also shared a similar comment: “My dog fell ill last weekend after being walked down the gare at Redcar ..five day’s he was ill whilst in the vets there was also another dog who had been walked down there and was ill.”
