Title: Are there cases of Canine Parvovirus in my area ?
Post by: Meg on Jun 17, 2017, 22:49
More commonly known as Parvo, Canine Parvovirus (CPV) is a highly contagious viral illness that affect dogs; though fortunately for several years there has been vaccination available to help protect against the disease.

However, occasionally there are cases where dogs have been infected  - this week 2 dogs had confirmed Parvo (both in the N8 area of London).

If anyone would want to check for any alerts of Parvo in the areas frequented by their dogs, there is an 'early warning system', in the form of an interactive online map, available here:
