Bushmills woman Tracy Strachan warns pet owners to avoid the river walk on the Conagher Road

1 Mins read

A Bushmills woman has warned pet owners to avoid the river walk on the Conagher Road as she believes that her two dogs took ill after drinking water from the River Bush.

Ballymoney Bubble News reports that Tracy Strachan ‘noticed that not all was right with her two dogs after they both drank water from the river. Both dogs began to exhibit stage behaviour and the worried owner immediately made contact with her vet’s practice for advice and for the animals to be checked over.’

The online news site went onto say that ‘the vet, after tests, believes both dogs had ingested something they shouldn’t have which made them ill. This may have come from the water they drank from the river as the owners other dog, which had remained at home, was symptom free. Of the two dogs who fell ill, one went onto require additional IV fluids.’

The vet informed the relevant authorities, the N.I. Environment Agency, who have since checked that section of the river but say they could not find any source or evidence of pollution at this time.
