Dog hard pad disease

Alongside the classic distemper comes a malign illness: hard pad disease. This case lacks the second fever access that characterizes distemper, and quick deaths are frequent. If the dog survives the second week, his pads and nasal trufa get hard.

The distemper virus may be expelled with the dog's feces in a period up to 2 months (healthy dogs get ill with them).

Out of the body, the virus is not active after a day with temperatures around 20°C, and even faster if exposed to sunlight. Therefore, the main source of infection is an ill dog.

Important: Treatment is an exceptional resource; distemper must be prevented through a guaranteed shot.
