Earlier this month Cyprus Today reported that stringent measures had been put in place at KAR’s rescue centre in Arapköy to prevent the spread of canine distemper following the death of around 80 dogs.

On Thursday the Veterinary Department announced that it had halted activity at the İskele Municipality pound after around 100 dogs there died from the disease.

Among the remaining 105 dogs, five were said to be in a critical condition and all are currently receiving treatment.

Veterinary Department head Hüseyin Benal said that the situation was “under control” and that dogs at the shelter had been vaccinated.
