Dear Rottweiler Friends,
Without wanting to minimalize anything, the present message wants to stop all senseless speculations and worries concerning the IFR-World Championship in Denmark.
We have indeed all heard that dogs in Norway suffer from a not yet identified disease (inflamed intestines – bloody diarrhea) that has proven lethal to some of them. Given timely veterinarian aid, suffering dogs are however said to recover.
The information that is available is limited, even after authopsies on the corpses of several deceased dogs.
At the moment it is still not known what causes the disease and it seems that it may not even be certain that all the ill dogs suffer the same disease and/or that their affections have the same causes.
