Parvo is a virus that affects young dogs (6 weeks to 6 months old), often in the spring or fall. It attacks the rapidly dividing cells in the body such as those that line the intestine, and the bone marrow.

Parvovirus is passed by ingesting fecal matter. Dogs can walk through other dogs’ poop and get it by licking their feet. Flies are also thought to be able to transmit parvo, and the virus can stay in the ground for years, and be carried on objects or clothing.
