Canine parvovirus is an extremely contagious virus that attacks the GI tracts of puppies and dogs, domesticated and wild. Very young or unborn pups can also suffer heart risks and damage as well.
The virus can contaminate everything your dog touches, including:
- Kennel surfaces
- Food and water bowls
- Collars and leashes
Because of this, it is imperative that infected dogs be isolated from others, and all beddings, bowls and toys be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.
