Understanding Canine Parvovirus (CPV)

 Canine parvovirus (CPV) is a highly contagious viral infection that affects dogs.

It attacks the gastrointestinal tract and can lead to severe diarrhea, vomiting, and dehydration.

 Puppies and young dogs are most at risk, but unvaccinated adult dogs can also contract the virus.

CPV is spread through contact with infected feces, vomit, or blood, as well as through contaminated objects or surfaces.

Symptoms of CPV include vomiting, diarrhea (often bloody), loss of appetite, and fever.
