In this webinar, Prof. Nicola Decaro will cover the virus and its outcomes, clinical signs and detection of diagnosis, due to disease stages. Available diagnostics tests in the clinical management and treatment recommendations, vaccination role and prevention measures and much more!

Canine parvovirus is an extremely contagious disease that affects all dogs but particularly unvaccinated dogs and puppies younger than four months old. That is why diagnosis is so critical!
Did you know that:

  • CPV2 is a highly contagious, fast progressive and life-threatening enteric disease which primarily affects unvaccinated or partly vaccinated puppies under the age of 6 months.
  • The virus has an affinity for rapidly dividing cells causing bone marrow and enteric damage resulting in panleukopenia and bloody diarrhea.
  • An accurate diagnostic tool is critical for taking early appropriate measures such as adjusting the optimal treatment, preventing viral spread and determining prognosis
  • A tentative diagnosis of CPV2 infection is based on anamnesis which includes exposure to contamination, vaccination history, clinical signs, and supportive blood tests.
  • A definitive diagnosis requires a sensitive and specific test.
