Parvo is a common and potentially serious viral disease that affects puppy's. The virus most common is the virus that causes extreme damage to the intestinal tract, causing sloughing of the cells that line the tract. This can leave the patient open to secondary bacterial infections. The intestinal signs include:
Loss of appetite
Diarrhea-usually bloody, and very foul-smelling
The easiest way to prevent Parvo is to vaccinate your puppy at six weeks, nine weeks, twelve weeks, and fifteen weeks. Do not take your puppy out to the park or out walking until he/she has been fully vaccinated.
