Recently at High Desert Veterinary we have seen some cases of Canine Enteric Coronavirus. (Cats and pigs have a very similar coronavirus.) Most infected dogs have mild gastro-intestinal clinical signs, but there are increasing reports of lethal CCoV infections throughout the country. Puppies are more susceptible to this virus. Canine Enteric Coronavirus is highly contagious via fecal–oral transmission. Systems of this infection are diarrhea, lethargy and vomiting. These symptoms are common to many other infections so taking your dog to the vet is recommended. The good news is, there is a vaccine for this virus!
