LAKESIDE, Calif. (KGTV) - One street. 4 dogs suddenly sick with similar, "crippling" symptoms.

On Monday morning, Boppa, a 13-year-old Bichon Frise, became lethargic, suffered severe diarrhea and weakness in the hind legs inside his Lakeside home.

In a several-day span, according to Boppa's owner Ken Canine, three other dogs in homes on either side of his home on Palomino Ridge Drive suffered similar symptoms. 

Several dogs were rushed to the vet but general blood tests just added to the mystery.
