There have been many cases in your surrounding area this year of a disease in dogs called parvovirus.
Parvovirus is a virus shed in large amounts in the stools of acutely infected dogs for up to several weeks following infection. The disease is transmitted by oral contact with infected feces. Parvo can be carried on the dog’s hair and feet, as well as on contaminated crates, shoes, and other objects. When the dog licks the fecal material off hair, feet, or anything that came in contact with infected feces, he acquires the disease. A dog or puppy unvaccinated is not protected from this virus.
Following an incubation period that averages four to five days, the acute illness begins with depression, vomiting, and diarrhea. Some dog have no fever, while others have high fever (
Parvo affects dogs of all ages and left untreated, the animal could die
