enteritis is a highly contagious serious disease of young dogs
under the age of 6- 20 weeks. Infected puppies shed virus in
their faeces thereby contaminating the environment and
increasing the chances of infection of naive puppies. All
puppies are at one point at great risk of infection even after
vaccination because of period of “window of susceptibility”.
Therefore, dog owners should strictly observe good hygiene and
disinfection of their environment and adequate exposure of
contaminated formites to sunlight and heat to destroy the virus.
This case in a 6 months female mixed (Alsatian and Rottweiler)
breed dog recorded frank foul smelly bloody diarrhea,
emaciation, anorexia, and severe vomiting. This report therefore
reviewed a tentative diagnosis of parvovirus enteritis disease
in dog with a view to highlight ways of management.
Key Words: Canine Parvoviral, mixed breed (Alsatian and
Rottweiler) dog, management, disease.
