In the wake of Alabama Rot spreading throughout the country it is now reported that another deadly dog disease, parvovirus, is sweeping across parts of the UK.
It is the second deadly animal disease which is currently being reported across the country, with fresh warnings for dog owners to be on high alert.
Alabama Rot has also claimed the lives of a number of dogs in recent weeks – including a four-year-old Shih Tzu in Bolton.
However, parvovirus attacks a dog’s intestines and stops them being able to absorb vital nutrients. It is contagious.
