Hancock Co. animal shelter remains closed
KILN, Miss. (AP) - The Hancock County Animal Shelter temporarily closed its doors last week as it dealt with an unknown illness that was making dogs there sick.
Director Toni Accardo tells The Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/1eMWCAA) she believed 39 dogs were sick with “dog flu” or canine influenza, but tests sent to the state lab returned inconclusive. That’s according to a post on the shelter’s Facebook page.
Accardo had said shelter workers noticed late last week the dogs were getting sick and attempted to treat them with fluids and antibiotics.
The shelter was also sterilized with bleach.
Accardo said dogs had high fevers and were suffering from green nasal discharge, coughing, sneezing, vomiting and diarrhea.
