JACKSONVILLE-- Three dogs in the same neighborhood, are recovering after what the police department believes to be a poisoning.

Tom Pradum a dog owner in that neighborhood says, "well one of our neighbors called us and told us about them."

Sgt. Greg Nichols from the Jacksonville Police Department is the investigator on this case. He says, "I think it's a lot more serious, this is more then a prank this is an intentional act."

Dr. Tami Rogers from Jacksonville Veterinary Hospital says "I don't even think you have to be an animal lover to be hit, this is sad."

The poisonings happened right by Graham and Applegate Streets in Jacksonville. A street which normally you can hear dogs barking... is quiet. Tom and his dog Roger live in this neighborhood.

Pradum says, "I think a little bit of disbelief, but i've heard of this happening before, but i've never lived somewhere where it happened in the neighborhood."

Tom tells me Roger is almost always on a leash and doesn't roam around outside alone.

Pradum says, "if we did let him outside now, of course we would have to be very very vigilant."

Sgt. Greg Nichols tells me he is waiting for test results to clarify what happened to the dogs. He says, "if they were poisoned by what substance."

Dr. Tami Rogers from Jacksonville Veterinary Hospital is the doctor that took care of the three dogs. She says one of the dogs was found with a meatball in his mouth. Then started experiencing muscle tremors. The dogs sister was also effected and was having full on seizures.

Dr. Tami Rogers says, "It's really unfair to see the effects poisons have on these animals and they have no idea they are just picking up a meatball and they think it's their lucky day."

According to Tom,

Pradum says, "any dog owner that left their dog outside before is probably keeping the dog inside more now."

All three dogs have returned home and are recovering.
