Put Your Best Paw Forward in aid of the Animal Health Trust

Holiday Dogs, the local home dog boarding company, are organising a ‘Sponsor Your Dog’ group walk with the help of, us here at, raising money to help the Animal Health Trust with their investigations into Seasonal Canine Illness.

A ‘Sponsor Your Dog’ group walk will be taking place on Sunday 4th December, meeting at Manor Terrace Car Park, Felixstowe at 11am for a leisurely walk around the Languard Fort area.  If you do not own a dog then please feel free to come along as the walk is open to anyone who wishes to raise money for the Animal Health Trust!

Registration is £5 per dog, you will then also be asked to raise sponsorship money for your dog to complete the walk, with all proceeds going to the Animal Health Trust to help them with their investigations of SCI.

To register your interest and to obtain a sponsorship form for your dog, please contact Mary-Ann from Holiday Dogs on 07840 871547, or via the contact page on the website

During autumn 2009 – 2010, several dogs, which had been walked in the woodlands, suddenly became ill.  In some cases dogs did not recover.  Cases of the illness, named Seasonal Canine Illness (SCI) are generally seen from August to November.

There have now been many reported cases from Rendlesham Forest – dog owners are therefore advised to remain vigilant during this time and seek immediate advice from a vet if you are concerned about your dog.

Holiday Dogs, with our help at will not only be raising money for this much worthy cause, but at the same time raising awareness.  It’s important that all dog owners are aware of the symptoms which are: VOMITING, DIARRHOEA, LETHARGY and should contact a vet immediately as clinical signs come on incredibly quickly, within a few hours of access to woodland.
