Parvo in dogs

We have had a confirmed case of Parvovirus.

The pet is recovering well at home.

Parvo is more commonly associated with puppies, but in this case it was a older dog.

Parvovirus is a highly infectious disease that can be fatal. Many dogs who are diagnosed with parvo will die.

The virus attacks cells in a dog’s intestines and stops them from being able to absorb vital nutrients. This means that a dog or puppy will become very weak and dehydrated.

It is also known as canine parvovirus, or CPV. Parvo is highly contagious to other dogs and spreads very easily around dogs and puppies that aren’t up to date with their vaccinations.

It takes up to seven days for a dog to show signs of having parvovirus after they have caught it.

Parvovirus spreads through body fluids, including in a dog’s poo and vomit. It is extremely hardy and can survive in the environment outside the body – for example in the grass at a park – for at least six months, and possibly much longer. Your dog can even contract parvo by sniffing another dog’s poo and it’s not uncommon for dogs to catch parvo when out for a walk.

Please make sure your pets vaccinations are up to date.
