GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — Veterinarians in Gillette say they're seeing more dogs with a gastrointestinal virus called parvo.
Vaccinations can immunize dogs from the virus but veterinarian Darren Lynde says most dog owners don't realize that more than one shot is needed.
Parvo isn't contagious to humans. Dogs that get it experience flu-like symptoms, including vomiting and diarrhea. They lose their appetite and become lethargic.
Lynde says the outbreak is the biggest he's seen in 20 years of practice. He tells the Gillette News-Record (http://bit.ly/1gb3x6O ) the virus isn't seasonal but dogs tend to get it during the warmer months when they're more active outside.
Lynde says parvo is fatal about 20 percent of the time but intensive therapy can help dogs overcome the virus.
