As director of a livestock and small animal diagnostic laboratory, I offer diagnostic services for managers of shelters across Tennessee. Canine parvoviral (CPV) enteritis is one of the most common causes of death of puppies in shelters.  This is not surprising as most shelter puppies have either not been vaccinated or vaccinated at an age when maternal antibodies prevent immunization.

When an outbreak of CPV occurs in these facilities, I always recommend an aggressive early vaccination protocol with NEOPAR®.  I have found that when NEOPAR® is used properly, it can control a CPV outbreak, even in the most demanding shelter situations.  Time and time again I am impressed how quickly NEOPAR® stimulates protection in parasitized, malnourished and stressed shelter puppies.

I am a practicing veterinarian in northwest Iowa. I have been in practice for about 34 years – working mainly with dogs and cats. I also work with several hundred kennels and have a kennel of my own. My main breed is English Bulldogs. I have seen many kennels with outbreaks of parvo. I recommend NEOPAR® to shut down the outbreak. I have tried many other vaccines and have found that NEOPAR® works and works quickly. I am very impressed with NEOPAR® and NEOVAC® DA2. I have many champions in my bulldog lines and I only use NEOPAR® & NEOVAC® DA2 in my puppies and in my adults.

Before using NEOPAR®, I used a four shot puppy vaccination program consisting one straight canine parvovirus vaccine and three 5-way combination vaccines.  I cannot count the number of puppies that I had personally vaccinated with this protocol that contracted a severe case of canine parvoviral enteritis.  While the severity and duration of disease in vaccinated puppies may have been decreased, the disease continued to occur throughout our community.

Since using NEOPAR®, I have been amazed by the decreased incidence of canine parvovirus.  Although I still regularly see canine parvoviral enteritis in unvaccinated dogs and puppies, I have never seen a case of canine parvoviral enteritis in puppies that have received 3 doses of NEOPAR®.  I have found NEOPAR® to be very safe and effective in preventing canine parvovirus in an area that is inundated with this extremely virulent disease.  Simply put, I am thrilled with my results since switching to NEOPAR® in the spring of 2007.

Jen Nall, Director of PAWS to the Rescue

Approximately 1,500 dogs are received at our shelter each year.  Our shelter is located in a poor, rural area, and there are not enough homes for all of the dogs locally, so we network with other rescues and transport many of our dogs and puppies to the northeast.  Many of the dogs that enter our shelter are underfed, stressed, and have intestinal worms.  Since their vaccination histories are unknown, it is our policy to vaccinate upon entry.  When we first began managing the shelter, we utilized 5-way vaccinations, but unfortunately, they failed to protect all the dogs and we had multiple cases of parvovirus each month.

In the winter of 2008, we changed our vaccination program and began using NEOPAR® and NEOVAC DA2®.  Puppies also receive a booster vaccination of NEOPAR® and NEOVAC DA2® two weeks later.  As a result of this change, we have drastically cut down on our problems with parvovirus.  As a small, rural shelter housed in an old tobacco barn, we are so proud to have been able to make such progress against this horrible disease.  Now, parvovirus within the shelter is extremely rare, and most cases that we encounter are puppies brought to the shelter already sick with parvo, as their owners cannot afford the veterinary treatment.

We LOVE NEOPAR® and NEOVAC DA2® and constantly sing their praises!  The staff at NEOTECH is wonderful and they have been so very helpful!  We highly recommend their products to anyone involved in animal rescue or a shelter situation.
