A spokesman for New Forest District Council said: "We are aware of a veterinary-led investigation into a small number of dog deaths in the Fordingbridge area.
We are working closely with other agencies to establish the cause. If dog owners are concerned, they may wish to follow veterinary advice and avoid the suspected areas of Ogdens / Latchmore Bottom, and to contact their local vet if they have any concerns about their dogs.”
