A deadly virus is sickening and killing dogs – confirmed in two states thus far. Here is what we know and what to watch out for with your dog.
Reports to Department of Agricultures are thus far from just two states – California and Ohio. The virus found is canine circovirus – which is not common to dogs. This is a virus typically found in pigs. Symptoms include vomiting, bloody diarrhea, weight loss, neurological problems, a lack of appetite and lethargy. Left untreated, dogs can die within 48 hours.
If your dog shows any of these symptoms, contact your veterinarian immediately. Please have them tested for canine circovirus – if they have any questions they can contact Ohio Department of Agriculture/Division of Animal Health for details. All reports of illness should be reported to your Department of Agriculture for proper monitoring of this virus.
It is not know if the virus is related to a pet food. It is not known how the virus is spread or contracted. I am waiting for a call back from Ohio Department of Agriculture – if I hear anything it will be posted.
GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
