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.
