You have probably seen the posts we’ve been putting on Facebook about Parvovirus. Unfortunately there have been several reports of dogs that have contracted this horrible illness locally.
We want to reassure you that we are taking all possible precautions within the creche to keep your dogs protected including being very vigilant in ensuring that all dogs using any of our facilities are vaccinated.
Parvovirus (parvo) is a nasty virus that attacks the lining of the intestines in puppies and dogs. It causes severe diarrhoea, vomiting and illness. Parvo is serious and if it’s not treated quickly it can cause death.
Puppies are particularly susceptible but it can affect unvaccinated dogs of any age. Thankfully regular vaccination protects against parvo.
Parvo is extremely contagious between dogs but humans can’t catch it.
