RJ: dogs allegedly poisoned had “hemorrhagic gastroenteritis”, says veterinarian

Residents and veterinarians in the west zone of Rio de Janeiro denounce the alleged poisoning of dozens of dogs on the streets of the neighborhood. According to reports from veterinary clinics in the region, the number of infected dogs could reach approximately 40.

In an interview with CNN , veterinarian Andrea Marinho, who works in Barra da Tijuca, reported that animals began to be taken to her office with non-infectious hemorrhagic gastroenteritis. The first cases appeared at the end of May.

According to the specialist, owners reported that symptoms appeared 30 to 40 minutes after the dogs returned from outdoor walks through the neighborhood streets.

Hemorrhagic gastroenteritis is inflammation of the animal’s digestive system. When this inflammation reaches the innermost layer of the organs, there may be desquamation, resulting in gastrointestinal bleeding.

According to residents, plastic bags containing possible poisonous substances were located in Jardim Oceânico.

According to Andrea Marinho, serious cases stopped appearing at the clinic about four days ago.

A group of residents appeared, on Monday morning (10), at the Animal Protection Police Station (DPMA), which is investigating possible cases.

According to the latest update from the Civil Police, to date, two people have filed police reports about cases of this type.

Among the victims of the poisoning are actor Cauã Raymond’s two dogs. On his Instagram profile, the actor stated that his dog Shakira remains hospitalized after being poisoned.

“She is recovering, still hospitalized, so let’s think positively so she can get out of this,” he said.
