Exclamation Need help!

2 of our family dogs just died today because of some disease my Mom believes they must've gotten from the soil or something. I want your help in this matter though. Other previous dogs that we have also died because of the same symptoms. It seems like the disease is somewhat contagious because it just passes on from one dog to another! We had 6 dogs and only have 4 dogs left in a span of hours! I'm afraid the other dogs might catch the sickness. Here are the symptoms we saw:
Dermatitis
Vomiting
Diarrhea which gradually led to blood in their stool
lost of appetite
weakness
Does anyone know what these symptoms are and how they can get treated?? I really need you help ASAP!

I totally agree. take the bodies to a vet and get a autopsy done. you need to figure out what it is without guessing.

You need to get the other dogs to the vet ASAP. The fact that it's already gone this far is crazy enough. At this first sign of those things I would have rushed mine in. You can't sit and wait and guess on these kinds of things.

Considering how recent they died, I think it may be worth taking at least one of the dead ones anyway, AND all of the ones still alive. This is very serious, and if its something like parvo you are going to have to COMPLETELY disinfect your entire yard. You need to find out what this is.

If you can't take the bodies you still need to take the living dogs to the vet this very moment!

Are theses dogs or puppies, if dogs are they vaccinated?

If they are not I'm going to guess that it's Parvo or Distemper, most likely parvo, that's causing the sickness. Both are highly contagious, and deadly. Your remaining dogs have a chance if you get them to the vet and get them the medical help that they desperately need.

Parvo can live in the soil for a year or more depending on the environmental conditions. Before bringing any more dogs into your home, you need to disinfect your yard, and for the sake of all the neighborhood dogs please quarantine your dogs and do not allow them out of your home / yard until you find out what's going on with them, and how long it will be for your dogs to not be contagious. Here's some info on parvo https://www.petfinder.com/dogs/dog-h...ne-parvovirus/

Please exhume one of the dogs and take him to a vet for a necropsy ASAP. Keep the other two dogs separate from one another until you go. This is an emergency. Don't call into the office for an appointment, call them and tell them you need to be seen first thing tomorrow. Sounds to me like PARVO.

what age dogs? Ever been vaccinated? Parvo certainly high on the list of possibilities (particularly if your dogs are unvaccinated and are young).
