Parvo Alert

The virus is not spreading at either shelter, nor is there an outbreak within the shelters, but the rise in parvo-positive dogs being brought to MADACC and WHS have us concerned.


Symptoms of the parvovirus include vomiting, diarrhea (which may be bloody), lethargy, pain and dehydration.

There is no cure, but it is preventable. MADACC and WHS officials are asking all Milwaukee-area dog guardians to make sure their dogs are current on the parvovirus vaccination. If you suspect your dog or puppy has parvovirus, please see a veterinarian immediately. For the WHS vaccine clinic schedule, click here.
