Distemper advisory

BVMA Distemper Advisory

We have received the following advisory from the Bahamas Humane Society which our resident pet owners should pay attention to:

Please be advised that there is a Canine Distemper Virus (CDV) outbreak in New Providence. The attached flyer has been posted on all vet clinic and shelter doors in Nassau. The BVMA is working to contain the virus along with the Ministry of Agriculture.

1.The first and foremost thing is: Please, DO NOT SEND ANY CANINES, BIG OR SMALL, young or old, to or from the island of New Providence, internationally or between islands, at present.

2. Keep your animals on your property. No long and wonderful adventuresome walks at the time being. Play groups are not recommended either.

3.The key to disinfecting is BLEACH – 30 (water) to 1 (bleach) – and foot baths so you do not track infection in or out.

4. The distemper virus does not like warm weather or sunshine. It lasts a maximum of 3 hours on surfaces and outdoors (including on grass) under these circumstances.

5. We suspect that even some vaccinated dogs may be able to contract this present strain; however, there are tests being done that will confirm or dispel this theory.

6. We have experts in the US helping us with this, and they say that the BHS is taking the correct precautions under the supervision of our Florida consultant, Jim Crosby.

7. All spay and neuter missions should be suspended at present due to the possibility of transferring infection from dog to dog.

If you have any questions, or concerns, please feel free to contact us at the BHS 323-5138/325-6742, Jim Crosby 463-4095, or Dr. Valentino Grant at Palmdale Vet Clinic 325-1354.

We want the well-being of all animals in the Bahamas to be foremost. Please see the attached flyer for symptoms to watch out for. People do not contract this disease, nor do cats. If your dog is showing symptoms, please contact your vet immediately.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this matter.

Please note that the BHS will be closed except for emergencies on Thursday, July 10th, for Bahamas Independence Day.

Important notice for pet owners

notice for pet owners

Dangerous dogs

There have been legitimate concerns raised by certain residents about dangerous dogs that reside within Sandyport. Whilst the Restrictive Covenants stipulate the weight limit of dogs to those under 50lbs, the Board determined that this should be aggressively enforced where animals are considered dangerous, and have been reported to the main office on more than one occasion. The relevant Restrictive Covenant reads as follows:

No swine cows horses poultry or objectionable animals or creatures shall be kept raised or maintained PROVIDED ALWAYS that a single dog weighing less than fifty (50) pounds when adult and a single cat shall not be deemed to be objectionable animals and providing nevertheless that they do not constitute a nuisance that they are normally kept inside the house and that they are not bred regularly.

Pet waste on common areas

We would like to remind all residents that the recreation areas are for the enjoyment of the whole community and, as such, we appreciate the co-operation of owners disposing of their pet waste at one of the conveniently located stations.

Pet waste on private property

Please ensure that the garden areas of the property are kept free of pet waste as the gardening personnel do not service affected areas.

We appreciate your assistance in improving our community.
