CANINE DISTEMPER. Are your pets up-to-date with their vaccines?
Dead gray foxes displaying symptoms of Canine Distemper seen nearby, in Southern NH (Hudson) and in the Upper Connecticut River Valley. The NH Fish and Game Department and the NH Department of Agriculture, Markets & Food advise the public to be aware of this situation.
Concord Monitor reports that this concern “has been circulating for several weeks. Police in the town of Hudson, alongside Nashua on the Massachusetts border, warned people in mid-November about reports of sick foxes, and distemper was thought to be the cause at the time.”
Concord Monitor and NH1 have been reporting on this, as well.
