There have been deaths of about three dogs among people that I know. The side effects are that they are losing weight and their tongue turns very gray and within a few days the dog dies. Does anyone know what this is? I have never seen anything like this. Please HELP.

I am really not sure of any specific disease that would cause this - not sure what area you live in. Sounds like more of a toxic disease - local toxic plant or foul play with malicious intent. Best is to probably try arrange a full autopsy of the body if it happens again to try establish the cause.
