Letter to the editor: Parvo vaccinations can prevent heartache

Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 12:01 am

Parvovirus (parvo) is preventable, and treatment may be very expensive.

Because treatment is expensive, people who have a dog diagnosed with parvo that they have learned to live with and the kids have loved to live with may leave the dog at a vet to be euthanized. Please know that for $29 at my vet you can get a parvo vaccination and prevent the heartache and the guilt people must feel.

And stress on both the owner and the vet staff. Call your vet or mine (Anthony Animal Clinic) and get your parvo shot if you haven’t already done it. Please!
