What is Parvo?

Parvo is a highly contagious viral disease among young dogs, and can be fatal. Many times, a stay in the hospital is necessary to see the puppy through. Common side effects include vomiting, decreased appetite, lethargy, and bloody diarrhea.

The Parvo vaccine is a part of every puppy’s vaccination series. We recommend not taking your puppy to places where other dogs frequent, such as parks or pet stores. However, after the vaccine series is complete, they are considered protected.
