Dog walkers and pet owners are asked to be extra vigilant near the Headquarters Road area.

A report of a second finding of pill-laced hot dogs has come to the attention of the Comox Valley SPCA.

There has been a report of a second batch of hot dogs near Headquarters and Casa Loma roads in Courtenay, B.C. SPCA Nanaimo & District branch manager Leon Davis told The Record.

Although there are few details about the second sighting, Davis said the SCPA is investigating and has the assistance of the RCMP.

Last week, a dog walker alerted the SCPA after some laced hot dogs were found near Headquarters and Edwin roads.

Davis added the branch did seek the help of two volunteer pharmacists, who may have identified the pills inside the initial batch of hot dogs.

“We think they might be Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen, both which are toxic to dogs,” he explained.

Comox Valley RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance with any information related to the case.

Individuals with information are asked to call 250-338-1321 or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or text cvcstips to crime.
