Canine Diseases

• Rabies—Rabies virus attacks the central nervous system and is typically fatal. The disease can be transmitted to humans and pets through the bite of an infected animal. Vaccination of all dogs and cats is the most effective means of control.
• Canine Distemper—This highly contagious viral disease affects the respiratory and nervous systems. Primary vaccination should begin at 6 to 12 weeks of age since dogs often contract the disease at an early age.
• Canine Parvovirus (CPV)—This contagious viral disease usually causes severe diarrhea and vomiting in dogs of all ages but is especially deadly in puppies.
• Canine Coronavirus (CCV)—It is highly contagious and can weaken dogs by causing diarrhea and vomiting. The disease is sometimes mistaken as parvovirus.

• Canine Andenovirus Type 1 and Type 2—Causes severe liver, kidney, spleen, and lung damage.
