Parvo kills - but this time the dog was lucky ...

A few days ago this Spitz was brought to our clinic. She had bloody diarrhoea, was very weak and had already water in her lungs.

The last Parvo cases all ended lethal but she looked hardy and strong and responded immediately to the infusion and injections. The survival rate for your dog with that virus is minimal and the disease can easily be avoided with a yearly vaccination.

We always preach that prevention is better than cure!
And this case proofs is so clearly:
We treated the Spitz and her brother and the bill for medication, care, boarding, transport, disinfection and cleaning (the virus is highly contagious) got high. The dogs could have been given their yearly booster for their whole life.

Yearly boosters and regular deworming are a must for a healthy pet!
