A mysterious and often fatal dog disease has now hit at least 173 dogs in Norway after the authorities announced six new cases on Monday.

The Norwegian Food Safety Authority (NFSA) said that the disease killed a total of 43 dogs and that they are still investigating its cause.

The NFSA said a conclusion is still pending and that so far nearly 90 different races have had similar symptoms, including vomiting and bloody diarrhea.

Two dogs can be seen playing upstairs in a park in the capital of Norway, Oslo. Reports of the disease first came from the capital, but soon sick dogs came up all over the country. The NFSA of Norway also said that nearly 90 different races had experienced similar symptoms, such as bloody diarrhea and vomiting

The first cases were noted with dogs in Oslo, but since then dogs have fallen ill throughout the country.

The agency also recommended that dogs be kept on a lead, avoid close contact with other animals, and not sniff areas or eat anything that other dogs have been to.

Although there is no official word about what makes the pooches sick, CNN reported that autopsies revealed an abnormally high amount of two types of bacteria after slaughter.

Although scientists are working to find out the cause of the disease, they still have to discover a definitive answer . Earlier this month's autopsies revealed that there were large amounts of two types of bacteria that could indicate the cause of the disease that claimed the lives of 43 dogs

The Norwegian Veterinary Institute, the NFSA and the Norwegian University of Life Sciences work together to find out the cause.

The teams are involved in national coordination with veterinary practices and have sent questionnaires to owners throughout the country.

As a precaution, dogs from Norway have been temporarily banned from dog shows in neighboring countries.

No cases were reported outside Norway.
