Parvovirus Treatment

What is parvovirus?

Parvovirus, or parvo for short, is a highly contagious viral infection that primarily affects dogs, particularly puppies and unvaccinated dogs. It spreads through contact with infected feces, contaminated environments, or through direct contact with infected dogs.

Parvovirus attacks rapidly dividing cells in the body, particularly in the gastrointestinal tract, leading to severe vomiting, diarrhea (often bloody), lethargy, loss of appetite, and dehydration. In puppies, the virus can also affect the heart muscle, leading to myocarditis.

Symptoms include:

  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Decreased appetite
  • Lethargy
