Abstract :

The lives of our beloved canine companions are often cut short when a lethal virus named canine parvovirus type 2 attacks them. This virus mainly attacks the gastrointestinal system of the dogs and produces bloody diarrhea leading to dehydration, emaciation, hypovolemic shock, and ultimately death. Besides the gastrointestinal system, it can also target other systems. Having no successful antiviral medicine commercially available makes its treatment difficult and leaves the infected animal at a 50% chance of survival.
