Protect your pet from parvovirus…

Friday, August 14th, 2009

If you have an unvaccinated puppy at home exhibiting signs of lethargy and anorexia, there is a high probability that he could be under a parvovirus attack.

It is a deadly virus that attacks the intestine and causes it to fall off. The disease spreads by direct contact. Other accompanying signs could be blood dysentery and vomiting.

In all 10 cases have been reported in New Wilimington this summer. Dr Melanie Sumney, a renowned vet points out that prevention is always better than cure. So, it’s imperative that you get your pet vaccinated with the proper shots and also take him for regular check-ups. In case he is not vaccinated for the time being don’t take him to public places. Although it is a curable disease, the cost of treatment might leave a dent in your pocket, warns the veterinarian.

So let’s take some time off from work and do all that is required to see our dearest friends in the pink of health.
