Parvovirus Found in Laramie County

(Courtesy Lindsey Taylor/ Cheyenne Animal Shelter)

There have been several reported cases of canine parvovirus that have been found in puppies around the City of Cheyenne.

Canine parvovirus or parvo can have devastating effects on these young animals. They destroy the fast growing cells in the intestinal tract and bone marrow. Animal Shelter Director Rick Collard says the puppy won’t eat, develops terrible diarrhea and becomes susceptible to all kinds of other infections. The disease is preventable with some basic precautions and an appropriate vaccination schedule.

The Cheyenne Animal Shelter wants to encourage residents of Laramie County and the surrounding area to take a few moments to call or visit with your veterinarian to ensure that your pets are protected against this disease. For more information, please call the shelter at 307-632-6655, or visit our website at www.cheyenneanimalshelter.org
