A LAKE COUNTY VETERINARIAN REPORTED SEEING MORE PARVO CASES THIS MONTH THAN HE HAS SEEN IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS COMBINED.

PARVOVIRUS , WHICH MOSTLY AFFECTS YOUNG DOGS, IS HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS AND CAN BE DEADLY. IT ATTACKS RAPIDLY DIVIDING CELLS IN A DOGS BODY AND AFFECTS THE INTESTINAL TRACT VERY SEVERELY. THE VETERINARY CLINIC, THAT NORMALLY SEES A COUPLE OF CASES A YEAR, HAS SEEN BETWEEN 15 AND 20 CASES IN THE LAST 30 DAYS. PARVO CAN BE TRANSMITTED BY PERSON, ANIMAL OR ANY OBJECT THAT COMES IN CONTACT WITH DOG FECES, HOWEVER, PEOPLE AND CATS CANNOT BECOME INFECTED.
