Vaccines can prevent canine parvo infections; there’s a 91 percent mortality rate in untreated cases.
“Our other animals in the shelter at this time have been vaccinated. This is the first case we’ve had to deal with,” says Amanda. “If you have puppies, it’s so important to get them vaccinated."
Today is National Hunting and fishing Day, a day introduced in 1972 that recognizes the health and recreational virtues of hunting and fishing. It’s also a day for East Texans that marks the preparation for numerous game seasons on the horizon.
