An unidentified illness has killed dogs in Michigan, officials said, stumping investigators who haven’t determined what is causing the dogs to show symptoms including vomiting, lethargy and loss of appetite.

Local officials said earlier this month that they had been receiving reports of dogs, mostly young ones, throwing up and passing bloody stool. More than 20 dogs had died in Otsego County in northern Michigan, with most of them dying within a few days, according to the Otsego County Animal Shelter.
