Parvovirus In Dogs
Parvovirus is a viral infection that is extremely contagious in dogs. It is a life-threatening viral problem particularly for pets that have not received a vaccination. The rate of parvovirus infection is quite high in puppies that are between two to five months of age, and the reason for this is that these young pups have not received enough vaccination, plus they still have a developing immune system. Parvovirus infection has certain symptoms that can turn up all of a sudden even in healthy puppies. Such symptoms include vomiting as well as diarrhea. In certain cases, the puppy might feel depressed or might not want to eat. The virus can severely affect blood vessels in the intestines which can lead to bloody diarrhea. The good news is there is a simple blood test that can help detect the presence of parvovirus in the dog's body. You must bring your pet to an experienced veterinary clinic Helotes TX to avoid any complications.
