How about the topic at hand? What conditions/diseases could cause these symptoms? I have dogs myself that are loved and would like to know if we need to worry about this spreading to our animals? If one of ours was to get sick and we have to take all of ours to the vet that can get costly quick.
The distemper is very contagious and if u have ever seen an animal that is infected with it its not a good sight at all and putting an animal to sleep that has it is the best thing i sure wouldnt want to suffer a death like that but i believe puppys get a distemper shot whe there pups so if ur dog has had its shots u should be good
Come on people

Maybe the County needs to build a multi-billion dollar facility to house all the stray, unwanted, mean animals in, and also have a multi-billion dollar budget to supply care for the sick animals. Not! Come on people get real! That over 5000 animals each year. In ten years how many animals will be there? You do the math.

The only way to solve it is to put in some strict laws about animal ownership. Make owners liable for allowing their pets to have unwanted puppies or kittens. There are a lot of people who just do not care and will set a bag of puppies out beside the road somewhere away from their house. Up north they do not have a lot of stray animals because they are strict about it.

Animal lovers want to focus on the animal shelter but they are just there as a response to the problem, they are not the cause of it.
