"It seems to be causing vomiting, stop your dogs sniffing other dogs"
We've heard reports of a number of dogs being unwell in the Clontarf area due to a new viral infection.
Local councillor Donna Cooney noted the issue on Twitter:
Please take care of your dogs and keep on short lead in St Annes Park and promenade and away from other dogs. Just had it confirmed from local Vet that there is a virus that is making our dogs sick.Take care pls RT @loveclontarf_ie @RahenyBusiness @FairviewDublin3 @ilovestannes pic.twitter.com/dZUVjnPpkN
