Paravovirus returns

A once dormant disease, which is highly contagious to dogs, is reported to be back on island.
Parvovirus has resurfaced here and the viral disease can be life threatening to canines, especially for puppies. The Cayman Islands Humane Society has confirmed two cases so far, while Island Veterinary Services says they have confirmed over 30 cases.
The disease can be found and spread through dogs that have not been vaccinated. It can be transmitted from one dog to another by getting in contact with an infected dog’s feces.
Dogs infected with Parvovirus will show symptoms, which includes vomiting, bloody diarrhea and fever, three to 10 days after exposure.
But, as Cayman Islands Humane Society Board member Lesley Walker explained, “It’s just like getting your children vaccinated, you wouldn’t consider not getting your children vaccinated and that is how we have managed to eradicate a lot of childhood illnesses like Scarlett fever and diphtheria and that is how we can eradicate parvo, if everyone makes sure that their animals are vaccinated.”
