!!ATTENTION!! The Ord Vet Clinic is reporting a Canine Parvovirus Infection outbreak in Ord and Broken Bow. There have been three cases alone this morning. Parvo is a quick spreading virus among puppies and is the #1 puppy killer.
The public is urged to no take puppies out in public. The virus manifests itself in two different forms. The more common form is the intestinal form, which is characterized by vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss and lack of appetite (anorexia). The virus itself stays in the ground where an infected puppy has been and is how the virus is spread.
If you suspect your puppy has parvo CALL the Ord Vet Clinic FIRST and set something up to vaccinate. DO NOT bring your puppy in the building. The clinic is trying to keep this virus contained as much as possible.
The Ord Vet Clinic phone number is 308-728-5221. Again DO NOT take your puppies out in public and do not bring them to the vet clinic building. CALL FIRST to set up appointment.
