canine parvovirus

Pet owners are being encouraged to ensure their pet's vaccinations are current following a recent increase in parvovirus cases. Dog owners need to be aware of the virus and its symptoms following a number of cases reported recently. 

Common symptoms of parvovirus include:

- Loss of appetite;
- Depression;
- Lethargy;
- Abdominal pain;
- Fever;
- Vomiting with or without blood; and
- Foul smelling diarrhoea with or without blood.

Puppies who have not been vaccinated are the most susceptible to contracting the highly contagious and often deadly virus. Parvovirus is only contagious to dogs and can remain in the environment for years. The main source of the virus is from the faeces of infected dogs.

Prevention is better than cure, please contact your local vet immediately if you have any concerns about your dogs health.
