Parvo canine virus likely contracted at Woodland Park offleash area

Posted by Meghan Walker on December 26th, 2012

Parvo is on the rise in the Seattle area, and our sister site, PhinneyWood posted this story about a resident whose dog was just diagnosed:

Jen emailed to tell us that her dog was just diagnosed with Parvo, a highly contagious disease affecting dogs, and she wanted others to be aware.

I was hoping you would help get the word out that my 11 mo. old fully vaccinated lab was just diagnosed with Parvo, and the time frame makes it almost certain that she contracted it at Woodland Park offleash dog park. I just don’t want any other pups getting sick, or if they do show signs of getting sick that their owners take them in asap!

    Having read this I thought it was rather enlightening.
    I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this short article together.
    I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and
    commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!
