Spring and summer time mean puppies. Let's face it, who doesn't love puppy breath?!?! Puppies can bring a lot of joy and laughter into your life. Vaccinations have always been an extremely hot topic in human medicine.
Vaccines in Veterinary Medicine can prevent a lot of diseases such as Parvovirus, which is a highly contagious virus that can affect all dogs. Unvaccinated dogs and puppies are at the highest risk. Parvo affects the gastrointestinal system and can be spread by contact with contaminated feces, environments and/or people. It is resistant to heat, cold, humidity, and drying, and can survive in the environment for long periods of time.
This virus is no joke! It is a hard sight to watch a puppy battle this disease. It can be prevented and should be.
