Not enough info on this story - were all of the animals kept outside, could it have been something like poison? Did all of the owners buy food for their animals at the same place? There could be many reasons for what happened, but at any rate, I hope the cause for the deaths is found, soon.

Where exactly have the deaths occurred? How close to the town limits of Purcellville? How close to intersection of route 9 and route 287? Who is following up on this within the Loudoun county government?

We had to put our dog to sleep last week. We live on 287 in Purcellville and am very interested in finding out more on this story. Who can we contact?

The Health Department treats seriously any health concern raised in Loudoun County, particularly if there is a suggestion it may be due to an environmental cause. We have been working with local veterinarians and owners of affected pets to learn more about what is occurring. We will also be visiting the sites to better determine if a potential common source can be determined and whether there may be any risk to other animals or people in the area.
