  • Adenovirus 1 (causes Infectious Canine Hepatits)

  • Adenovirus 2 (one cause of Infectious Traceobronchitis, AKA “kennel cough”)

  • Parainfluenza (another cause of Infectious Traceobronchitis, AKA “kennel cough”)

  • Parvovirus (causes Canine Parvo)

In addition to the above, a Bordetella vaccination is required.

CANINE DISTEMPER:

Canine distemper is a highly contagious and often fatal viral disease. It is found worldwide in places inhabited by dogs and other members of the canine family. The virus is spread in the air and via direct contact through respiratory secretions of an infected dog or wild animal. Distemper primarily affects puppies and younger dogs, but can infect and be potentially fatal in dogs of any age. The disease attacks primarily the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and nervous systems (brain and spinal cord) but can affect every organ system of the body. It may cause vomiting, diarrhea, pneumonia, and severe brain damage. Canine distemper is so widespread that nearly every dog is exposed during its lifetime. This disease is not transmissible to humans or cats. Canine distemper’s high fatality rate makes vaccination essential

ADENOVIRUS 1, ADENOVIRUS 2 (AKA CANINE HEPATITIS)

Canine adenovirus infection comes in two forms – Type-1 causes severe (even fatal) liver disease; Type-2 causes respiratory disease which can lead to pneumonia and death. These viruses are very contagious. Dogs of any age can become infected with canine adenovirus via contact with infected saliva, mucous, urine, or feces. Neither form of canine adenovirus is transmissible to humans or cats.

PARAINFLUENZA VIRUS:

Canine parainfluenza virus is one of the most common causes of infectious tracheobronchitis, also called “kennel cough”, an infection of the windpipe (trachea) and its lower branches (the bronchi). Other important organisms can also cause kennel cough, such as canine adenovirus-2 and Bordetella bronchiseptica, a bacterial pathogen. Kennel cough is characterized by a dry, persistent cough which can last for weeks to several months even with treatment. The disease is extremely contagious from dog to dog. It can lead to pneumonia and death. The disease does not affect humans or cats.

PARVOVIRUS:

Parvovirus is a highly contagious and potentially fatal disease of puppies and unvaccinated adult dogs. This virus is transmitted by direct contact with infected dogs or wild members of the dog family, infected feces, or a contaminated environment. Canine parvovirus can live for months to years in the environment. Canine parvovirus causes fever, severe vomiting, diarrhea (often -but not always- containing blood), and dehydration in dogs. The disease is often fatal. The virus is especially lethal to young dogs. It is transmitted by contact with parvovirus-infected dog feces or with an object which has come into contact with infected dog feces.
The virus may be brought into a home on a person’s hand, clothes, or shoes. Therefore, even a strictly indoor dog with no direct contact with other dogs, should be vaccinated against parvovirus. This disease does not affect people or cats.
