Protecting your puppy from the parvovirus

By Nicole Pajer

The parvovirus attacks the lining of a dog’s digestive system and prevents him from being able to properly absorb nutrients and liquids. Puppies are extremely susceptible to parvo as their immune systems are not fully mature.

Parvo prevention methods

The best way to prevent your new puppy from becoming infected with parvo is to make sure that he receives all of his required vaccinations. Puppies should avoid contact with outside dogs and public areas until at least two weeks after their third vaccination.

    Common symptoms of parvo

  • Diarrhea, blood in stools
  • Lethargy
  • Fever
  • Vomiting
  • Severe weight loss
  • Loss of appetite

If you recognize any of the above symptoms in your new puppy, rush him immediately to the vet. Early detection can significantly increase the odds of the dog surviving and can help to minimize the amount of hospitalization as well as medical bills associated with treatment.
