Pet dogs die from suspected poisoning at Kovan field

On Friday (6 Oct), a pet owner rushed their dog to the vet after it developed seizures.

The dog, a barely two-year-old Bernedoodle named Palo, had apparently started seizing just 40 minutes after coming home from the field at Parry Avenue.

After fighting for eight hours, Palo passed away in the presence of those who loved him.

It’s believed that Palo was a victim of poisoning that led to his death.

However, the Bernedoodle was not the only supposed one. Yet another dog, 11-month-old Sunkiss, has also passed away in the last two days.

In Sunkiss’ case, his owners similarly shared that he suffered “excruciating seizures” which left him barking loudly, waking them up from their sleep.

By the time they arrived at the Veterinary Emergency & Specialty (VES) Hospital, he reportedly no longer had a heartbeat. The vet managed to resuscitate him once but he soon collapsed again.

Sunkiss was said to have passed within just 40 minutes of him suffering seizures.

MS News has reached out to the related parties for more information and will update the story when they reply.

Animal lovers spread the word

Following the alarming deaths of the two dogs, animal lovers have since stepped up to spread the word.

Palo’s owner shared that the dog community has put up signs to prevent any further deaths.

Although it’s not confirmed that the field is toxic to dogs, they urged others to avoid the field at Parry Avenue for now.

“Palo loved this place [and] gave his life to it,” they said. “Let him be the last dog that passes for this.”

In a separate Instagram story, Palo’s owner shared their belief that the surrounding areas around the field may also be affected.

A roughly hewn sign warned owners of suspected dog poison in a list of places, presumably nearby.

MS News has also reached out to NParks for comments on the matter. We’ll update the article if they get back.

We extend our sincere condolences to Palo and Sunkiss’ loved ones. May the two puppies rest in peace.
