Information to help keep your pet healthy

CAUSE

Canine parvovirus (parvo) is an extremely contagious disease; puppies are especially susceptible. The disease is most often transmitted by fecal/oral contact. The virus can survive six months or more in the environment. A bleach/water solution is the recommended disinfectant.

SYMPTOMS

Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, depression and low grade fever. There is a sweet, foul odor to a parvo dog. Treatment often requires the help of a veterinarian to monitor for dehydration and electrolyte balance. Rehydration may require intravenous feeding or subcutaneous fluid injections.

DIAGNOSIS

Diagnosis requires a laboratory test. Canine coronavirus, a very similar illness in symptoms and treatment, is often mistaken for canine parvovirus but is far less severe.

PREVENTION

Commercial vaccinations are available; ask advice for a suitable vaccination schedule from your veterinarian. Maternal immunization is helpful, but after weaning and during the vaccination series the puppy is highly susceptible to the virus. It is advisable to avoid public parks and other areas frequented by dogs until after twenty weeks of age and the immunization series is completed.
