It is believed that the puppy ingested some kind of poisonous substance yesterday afternoon, 30 December, while walking in park behind White Castle, Toothill.

She was later admitted to the vets. Luna’s owner, Robert, posted on Facebook yesterday: “This little bundle of joy is fighting for her life at the moment for some thing she eat whilst out on a walk at the back of white castle in west Swindon.”

Luna was sedated overnight, and owner Robert is hopeful, posting: “She seems to be responsive but still rate her [chance of survival] as 50/50”.

We are unsure if this is intentional or unintentional poisoning at this stage.

An RSPCA spokesperson commented: “If anyone suspects that their dog has been poisoned they must take it to a vet immediately.

“If possible, they should take a sample of what the dog has eaten.”
