Update On Deadly Virus Killing Michigan Dogs

deadly dog virusNew information is being learned about a rare virus that has very quickly taken the lives of several Michigan dogs recently.

Veterinarians from Michigan State University can now give that virus a name and tell dog owners what to watch for.

An Ann Arbor vet became alarmed earlier this week as she treated more and more dogs showing symptoms of a rare virus, never before seen in Michigan.

Six dogs showing symptoms of the virus have died this month, usually just 12-24 hours from the onset of the first symptom.

Experts from the Diagnostic Center for Population and Animal Health at the Michigan State College of Veterinary Medicine are now confirming that the virus is canine circovirus.

Dog owners are urged not to panic, but if your pet starts to suffer from symptoms such as sneezing, vomiting, lethargy and diarrhea, a visit to your vet is a good idea.
