Parvo Virus - Parvo Puppy and Dog Virus

When you get a new puppy or a new adult dog, the most important things you can do for your dog's health is to prevent them from being exposed to illness or diseases.

The Parvo Virus has taken the lives of  so many puppies and adult dogs that it has put a lot of fear in the hearts of dog owners everywhere.  Parvo is an illness that has the ability to take the lives of young puppies, weak dogs and elderly canines.

You don't have to be fearful and there are a few things you can do to help your beloved dog avoid getting parvo.

There are vaccinations that can guard against your dog getting the virus. And that is a very good thing. The problem is you that you cannot give the vaccination to newborn puppies.

It is suggested by most veterinarians that you wait until your puppy is at least 4-6 weeks old because during those first weeks your puppy will be receiving a lot of immunity and strength from its mother. So during those first few weeks of its life your puppy is very much at risk for parvo attack.

Symptoms of parvo can include severe vomiting, high fever and diarrhea that is bloody. It is also possible that your puppy will not show any signs of being sick before they die from it. You may be able to save your dog by getting help from your veterinarian - but often once a dog gets parvo they don't usually survive it.

It is important for your new puppy to get well socialized as you introduce them to their new family and surroundings - however because of the danger of the virus it is important to protect them from contact with other dogs until after they have gone through the full series of vaccinations which usually takes at least 16 weeks.

When the weather is cooler your dog will really benefit from a heated dog house or a warming dog house heater.
