Parvo- A deadly virus for canine friends

Canine parvovirus (CPV) is a highly contagious viral disease of dogs that commonly causes acute gastrointestinal illness in puppies and adolescent dogs who are not vaccinated. The disease mostly affects pups between 6 to 20 weeks old, but sometimes older animals can also catch the virus. It severely affects intestinal track and also the white blood cells, and when young animals are infected, the virus can damage the heart muscle and cause lifelong cardiac problem or can even prove to be fatal for the animals.

This season, we are receiving 20 to 30 CPV cases daily in our ‘Outpatient Department’. Our team of vets & vet assistants are busy providing intensive treatment to all these poor souls who are fighting with the deadly virus. With proper medication and care they are gaining back their strength and they will go back to their regular life in no time.

SYMPTOMS                                              

Clinical signs of parvovirus generally develop within five to seven days of infection. Early symptoms of parvovirus typically include lack of appetite, extreme tiredness, and fever, followed by sickness and diarrhoea 24 to 48 hours later.

 

TREATMENT

Treatment may include:

  • Intravenous fluids (a drip) to treat shock and correct dehydration and electrolyte abnormalities
  • Anti-sickness medication
  • Painkillers
  • Plasma transfusions and/or blood transfusions to replace proteins and cells
  • Antibiotics to treat or prevent secondary infections as a result of the effects of parvovirus infection
  • Tube feeding

 

 

 

 

We sincerely thank and value your continuous help and support which give us the strength to achieve more and more.
