The answer to yesterday's trivia question is False! Adult dogs can become infected with parvo.

Parvovirus is a highly contagious viral infection that can affect dogs of any age. The majority of cases are seen in puppies but unvaccinated adult dogs are also at risk.

Parvo is potentially fatal but dogs treated by a veterinarian have a 68-92 percent survival rate. Dogs can contract this virus directly from other dogs or from contaminated objects/feces.

Symptoms of parvo include bloody diarrhea, lethargy, appetite loss, vomiting, fever, weakness, weight loss, and dehydration. Seek immediate veterinary care if you suspect that your dog has been exposed to parvovirus!

Prevent parvo by making sure your puppy/adult dog is up to date on their DHPP (distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, and parvoviris) vaccine. Have questions about parvo? Give us a call today!
