What is Parvo?
Parvovirus enteritis is a highly contagious virus in dogs that has the potential to cause severe illness and even death. Commonly called ‘Parvo’, it spreads quickly and easily among dogs. The infection can be passed from an infected dog to another dog through direct contact or indirectly from something contaminated by the virus, even if it is cleaned up. This is because the virus is extremely tough and stays in the environment for a long time.
This virus lives in the intestines and blood. It damages the heart muscle and GI tract of puppies and dogs. Without proper preventative care, it can be deadly.
- Weakness and fatigue
- Lack of appetite
- Vomiting and diarrhea
Severe Cases include:
- Darker gums
- Weak pulse
- Racing heart rate
- Signs of hypothermia
Parvovirus starts quickly, with symptoms appearing in as little as 5-7 days.
There is not a drug to cure parvovirus in dogs but with early, aggressive treatment and intensive nursing care, dogs have a greater chance of survival.
