|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.|
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Parvo issues in your area?

I work for a vet in Johnson City, Tennessee and in the past 3 weeks we have seen 13 cases, only 3 were willing to do treatment (of which 2 lived) and the rest were put down. I know spring is parvo season, but I dont remember it being this bad? Just wondering if anyone else is seeing it in their area.

We had it recently here in WA, it started at one of the dog shows and caused a lot of people (including me) not to go to the next show. There was also a case at our local shelter a couple months back and we couldn't walk the dogs for about two weeks til they got out of quarantine.

I'd be very cautious. I have a breeder friend (she breeds and shows Danes) who didn't go to that show because of the risk of parvo. Better safe than sorry I guess.

My neighbors across the street recently lost a puppy to parvo. Then they went out and got another and lost it too. I guess they didn't know that it would stay in their yard -
I just always assume it's out there and take precautions everywhere.

The best way to prevent Parvo is to keep your dog healthy and protected. We titer to make sure antibodies are present.

Parvo is more seasonal here in NorCal. I'd say that we'll start to see more cases when the weather gets warmer, within the next few weeks probably. Non yet this year (knock on wood).

In NY state we have noticed a lot more Parvo, even had a couple rescues we know locally that got Parvo puppies. I guess there is a HUGE outbreak in the south right now, so Rescue Groups that pull dogs from the south to save them from Kill Lists, are ending up with a lot of Parvo.
Even had one Rescue Group that was Lied To by a southern shelter staff that said puppies had their vaccines when they didn't have any, and had 11 puppies die, some already adopted, and 1 survived.
Its pretty awful, even got our local Petco considering a halt to the rescue program where they have rescues bring in pets for adoption like 1-2 times a week.
