This Week in Puppy News: June 2 - June 8

This week learn about a potential new cure for puppy parvo, how dogs know what you're feeling, and ways that dogs are replacing humans.

Trial Results Promising for Curing Puppy Parvo

Canine Parvovirus is a deadly disease that most frequently affects dogs between the ages of 6 and 20 weeks. There is a vaccine for it, but younger puppies not yet vaccinated are still susceptible. Treatment is expensive and unreliable at best. At least, until now. A new study is showing a 90% success rate with a cure costing less than 4% of the current cost. This is great news for puppy owners. Hopefully the study continues to show this kind of success.
