Protect your fur family from canine parvovirus (PARVO)
There is nothing more distressing for a dog owner than to find out that their fur friend has contracted what could potentially be a life-threatening sickness. Unfortunately, PARVO - a deadly form of canine virus - is very common.
PARVO can cause some serious health complications for your beloved pet, which is why you should be taking all possible measures against the chances of your dog contracting it.
In this article, we will take a closer look at what PARVO is, and how you can protect your dogs from it!
What is PARVO?
PARVO is a disease caused in puppies by the canine parvovirus (CPV or CPV2). The reason why PARVO is so threatening is that it is extremely contagious. Not only that, but a dog can contract due to both indirect and direct interaction with an infected dog or any other contaminated object. This means that your puppy is more or less always exposed to the risk of getting parvovirus.
For example, something as trivial as a person who has been in contact with an infected dog petting your puppy can lead to your puppy getting the virus.
Parvovirus affects the stomach and small intestines, and this is where the virus does most of the damage. It destroys the cells inside the small intestine. It is also known to disrupt the gut barrier and cause complications in terms of absorption.
Younger puppies are more susceptible to parvovirus - so if your dog is aged six weeks to six months, you need to ensure that they are either vaccinated against parvovirus or are sheltered enough that they have no contact whatsoever with the virus.
Disinfecting Your House to Get Rid of Parvovirus
