    It's another disease to worry over, but putting it in perspective the confirmed cases in the UK have been minimal. Though I can't help wondering how many dogs have died from this where it has not been identified?

    There was a suspect case (IIRC) in Nuneaton last week

    I'm wondering how the disease found its way over here?

    I'm not sure it's quite the same Lex. From memory didn't the US variety only affect greyhounds?

    As regards how diseases migrate from different countries in general, aircraft are a great carrier. You'd be surprised what we used to pull off aircraft that had been overseas for a while. - God knows what we were exposed to!
