An Unidentified illness is killing dogs.
When the cause of an illness is known, it may often be treated, but when an illness is unidentified, recovery takes time.
According to data from the Otsego County Animal Shelter, numerous dogs have become ill over the past month with symptoms that resemble parvo.
Vomiting and bloody stools are symptoms. Most of the canines were younger than two years old and passed away three days after exhibiting symptoms.
A few of the dogs are safe as they have been vaccinated.
Veterinarians are still unsure of what is causing the illness.
According to FitzGerald, "the best assumption" is that it is a new disease of parvovirus, a condition that primarily affects puppies and results in spells of bloody diarrhea and vomiting.
The parvovirus, which can be fatal and transmits from dog to dog and affects their gastrointestinal systems, has been detected in some cases by the state.
It mostly impacts puppies and spreads from dog to dog, hurting all puppies that exhibit the symptoms.
But according to Ms. FitzGerald, when the dogs have been tested at the clinic for that virus, the results have been negative.
The answer to this is still a puzzle, but as per the latest update Michigan is the affected state as a result of this issue.
