Parvo Outbreak

Please get your dogs vaccinated as this is a terrible way for your dogs to die. My neighbour had three puppies die just over a month ago and I suspect it may either be the Parvo Virus or Biliary Fever, so please be careful out there.

I have known about the Parvo Virus in and around the Randburg area for a while now but now I see this warning outside a local Randburg Vet.

"THERE IS AN OUTBREAK OF PARVO VIRUS in dogs in the Kya Sands Informal Settlement / Bloubosrand area. PLEASE bring your dogs for vaccination. This WEEK ONLY we will vaccinate at cost price of vaccine. R60 for camp dogs (Normal cost of vaccination R240. Cost of treatment with 50/50 chance of survival +- R2500.) This clinic can NOT treat any more Parvo Virus cases for no money!"

Well there you have it, from the horse’s mouth.
