Three puppies die as result of Parvovirus outbreak in Dover

When: 2012-08-24 23:00:00 -0700
Where: Dover, Kent, United Kingdom


Details:

At least five cases of canine parvovirus have been recorded in Dover, UK, in the past few weeks and three puppies had to be put to sleep after contracting the deadly virus.

Parvo attacks a canine's stomach, brain and heart if contracted and gives its host dysentery-like symptoms and breathing problems.

Dog owners are being urged to keep a close eye on their dogs and ensure their vaccinations are current. Puppies usually receive parvo in their initial set of vaccinations. Therefore unvaccinated puppies should not be exposed to areas where there are many dogs, as there is the possibility of the pup being exposed to parvo, which can live for months in soil and on surfaces.
