PAWS & PAGES: Don’t wait, vaccinate!

Within the last week, the Humane Society of Imperial County has received several puppies from the public that were “found as strays.” Shortly upon their arrival to the shelter, a handful of these puppies had very loose and foul-smelling stool and vomiting.

Although there are many different things that can cause these symptoms, when it comes to young dogs that are not properly vaccinated, the culprit most often is canine parvovirus.
