Having a sick dog is on no one’s to-do list. Even lower on the list, though, is having a pet who is sick with a disease that is very preventable.
Parvovirus is a serious canine illness that can be deadly. It is also a disease that is almost entirely preventable with vaccination. We are seeing a rash of cases lately here at Ten West Bird and Animal Hospital, so we thought it might be a good time to revisit parvo in dogs and what pet owners can do to protect their canine companions.
