    I have just heard there is a Parvo virus outbreak in the Yorkshire area. At least seven dogs have died or have been pts at just one veterinary surgery within the last few days.

  5. Don't want to scaremonger but I was told by someone a while back that there was a new strain of parvo that the innoculations do not prevent anyway, TBH did not pay much attention to this and dunno if it's poppycock or what. I did try and check it out later though and thought that is were in the US that this new strain had been identified but really do not know for sure but if anyone does know or has heard the same would be interested in learning more .

    Be interesting to know how many sufferers were vaccinated.

    Really rough on those in the vicinity though. :(
