Deadly dog flu!

FG ≫ 2006 ≫ Deadly dog flu!

Front page of the Herald this week, and here it is on ickent1...

A KILLER dog virus has struck in Folkestone, claiming three victims and it is feared it will spread.

The deadly parvovirus has killed three dogs from the same household and a vet has warned that more deaths are likely.

Grandmother Maria Lee, 56, of Radnor Park Crescent, was absolutely distraught after she lost three of her beloved dogs in the space of 24 hours.

Although there is no guaranteed cure for the virus but pet owners are being encouraged to get their dogs vaccinated.

Vet Anthony Barnes, of the Manor Road Clinic, described the horrific and painful way in which the disease kills.

This is part of my site The Folkestone Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I had been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. This site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for favourite places + things, + I hear it was a useful resource for others who were moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from the name of a pretend paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
