Prior to 2012, circovirus was only seen in pigs and chickens. Crossing over into dog populations, cases have been reported in California, Michigan and Ohio. There have been reports of sick animals and several deaths related to circovirus.
So far, cases have limited to boarding/kennel situations and are it contagious in nature. Symptoms to look for are lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea and bloody stool. These symptoms may be present in a variety of diseases. Any pet exhibiting these symptoms should be evaluated by a vet immediately.
A strong immune system, supported by proper nutrition supplements, chiropractic adjustment and acupuncture, is your pet’s best defense against illness. Dr. Gerald Buchoff and Dr. Vanessa Moore can create a protocol to help your pet stay healthy and live longer.
