Parvovirus disease in your dog Owner Factsheet

Parvovirus enteritis is a serious viral infection of the gastrointestinal tract of young dogs. The virus attacks the cells of the gut resulting in vomiting and profuse diarrhoea. Parvovirus also suppresses the immune system and causes a profound decrease in the white blood cell numbers circulating in the blood.

The management of parvoviral enteritis includes intravenous fluids and supportive treatment.
