Our Goal - To Help Make Parvo History
Canine Parvovirus (a.k.a. “Parvo”) is the most dangerous virus in Australia for our canine pets (dogs and puppies).
Most people vaccinate their pets at their vet’s recommendation but don’t know that the main reason for the multiple vaccinations they especially need to give to their new puppy, is to help prevent their pet catching or spreading Parvo. Of all the viruses we vaccinate against, Parvo is by far the worst.
Parvo kills more pet dogs in Australia every year than any other virus. In fact, in Australia a dog catches Parvo approximately every 24 minutes. The disease causes terrible vomiting and diarrhoea, followed by dehydration and sadly in many cases death, particularly in puppies.
We want it to stop. And we have a bold plan to stop Parvo cases
in the areas where this disease is killing our pets.
And when our project works, we will be on the way to
maybe even helping eradicate Parvo in Australia, for good.
If not vaccinated properly, any dog has a high risk of catching this disease, during an outbreak. And sadly, outbreaks across Australia are still common, even in first-world Australia today. For a lot of people who live in good areas in capital cities the risk for their pets catching Parvo is quite low. But in other areas Parvo is everywhere. And we want to do something about it.
