Parvo reported on the rise at Palm Beach County Animal Care

Panleukopenia is a parvo virus in cats. You do not get revaccinated every 1-3 years with the same vaccine and neither should your dog or cat. According to the AMA journal revaccinating dogs and cats every 1-3 years for parvo would be included in the FDA definition of health fraud. Thats why pet vaccines are not FDA approved. Just make sure your dog or cat has been properly vaccinated against parvo. If vaccinated early as pups or kittens they may need a final adult vaccine. Your vet can run a blood parvo test titer to find out if one more vaccine is needed.

PALM BEACH COUNTY-- Two potentially deadly viruses that attack dogs and cats are on the rise in Palm Beach County, according to Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control.

Pet owners should make sure their dogs and cats are vaccinated.

The county animal shelter is seeing an increase in the number of dogs brought in with parvovirus and cats with panleukopenia.

The diseases were brought to the shelter by infected animals, according to Elizabeth Harfmann, spokeswoman for Animal Care and Control.

Both are highly contagious, viral diseases whose symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea and lethargy. An animal infected with parvovirus also might show signs of depression and a loss of appetite. Cats with panleukopenia may also stand over a water dish
