Canine Parvovirus & Toxoplasmosis in Dog
Parvovirus is a relatively new canine disease. It is generally known as "feline infection". It is actually a similar virus , although not identical, to the pathogenic agent of a cat disease, panleucopenia.Puppies die quickly of parvovirus due to a swelling in the cardiac muscle. They are at very high risk when the pathogenic agent is in their surroundings. In adult
Important: Transmission is from dog to dog, or from humans who carry the virus. A dog can not acquire the disease from a cat, nor vice versa.
