Sad to see the cause still remains a bit of a mystery.

I was hoping that by now that common patterns might have been linked....I looked at the maps& wondered if it
might be linked to wild ponies.....new forest certainly seems to have had a few cases.

I recently read that there seems to be a link to harvest mites as affected dogs are often found to have some. However my thoughts are that dogs with harvest mites are probably more likely to have broken skin from scratching or licking which would increase the risk of infection entering the blood stream.  Who knows. it is a worry. I always wash feet when we come back from a walk and also add a little hibiscrub.

I’ve previously asked Anderson Moore’s if it’s a man made environmental toxin such as antifreeze etc as it was always being found in wet weather. Their answer “they’ve considered and discounted environmental toxins”. They weren’t specific but my brain says they’ve discounted man made, fungi spores, bacteria and virus.....what else is left
