Fears have been raised by owners after a number of dogs needed urgent medical treatment when they found and ate sausages in parks on Freemantle Road and Alwyn Road while being exercised.
“I would urge all dog walkers to be vigilant and use their common sense when walking through parks.
“They should keep their dogs on their leads if they feel worried or notice anything suspicious. And keep an eye out for anything that looks out of the ordinary.
“We have heard about the incidents in Alwyn Road and know that there were definitely some dogs affected in the area.
“If you think that your dog has eaten anything that could harm them you should contact your nearest vet immediately.”
Police are investigating the Bilton incidents, and any relation to similar cases in a Bedworth Park earlier this year which saw
dozens of dogs treated for suspected cases of poisoning.
The RSPCA urged dog owners to call 0300 1234 999 immediately if they feared their dog had been poisoned.
