Seasonal Canine Illness
Visitors bringing their dogs to Sandringham should be aware of Seasonal Canine Illness (SCI) between September and November, which is a mystery illness affecting dogs during the autumn, and which can prove to be fatal.  Cases have occurred at Sandringham as well as in woodland in other parts of the country.  The cause of SCI is unknown, but it can affect dogs of any size, shape or sex and it causes dogs to become very ill, very quickly after being walked in woodland.  The most common clinical signs are sickness, diarrhoea and lethargy typically experienced within 72 hours of walking in woodland. If dog owners suspect their dog is showing signs of SCI then they should contact their vet immediately.  If you are visiting Sandringham with your dog, please keep it on a lead at all times and stay in the grassland areas.
