I believe that most dog breeders know that they know that they do not want to appear on their dogs. The largest infectious disease of the dog can be said to have a very strong lethality. Whether it is a dog or puppy, its cure rate is generally not very high. So let's do a certain understanding of the basic knowledge of canine plague.

Features: 1. Infectiousity is extremely strong 2. Death rate is extremely high 3. Do not infect humans and cats 4. Vaccine can effectively prevent

Source of disease: dog plague virus

Infectious: Dogs infected with canine plague viruses (even dogs that are in the incubation period or weak symptoms can spread the virus) to be the source of infection, the virus is extremely contagious, and it can be transmitted through the air. If an immune -immune puppy has been in contact with the infected virus, it is very likely to be infected, because the virus will enter the dog's body when the dog breathe through the mouth and nose.

Symptoms: The surgery of canine plague virus has a latent period of about 10-14 days (even more long). Although the infection of about 3-6 Territail will have fever and appetite. It is difficult to find measures in time. The virus first invades the dog's lymphatic system to spread the whole body and then enter the blood circulation. It mainly affects the respiratory system, digestive system, and central nervous system, so the symptoms of onset are generally concentrated in organs related to these systems. Because of the large impact area, the symptoms of dogs can also be very different. Common symptoms are runny nose, increased eye feces, anorexia, lack of spirit, and pneumonia, blindness, epilepsy and so on.


Dog plague is a disease with a very high mortality rate. Conservative estimates are that the mortality rate of general puppies is about 80%-90%, and the mortality rate of adult dogs is about 60%-70%. At present, there are no very effective antiviral drugs that can be used. Treatment is generally carried out for existing symptoms, focusing on preventing and reducing secondary bacterial infections. Because the dog's body is very weak and continues to spread the virus, the diseased dogs generally receive a considerable long infusion treatment, and the treatment must be performed in an isolated state. If the virus has invaded the dog's nervous system, the damage caused is generally irreversible. After the dog is cured, the symptoms of the nervous system may still exist during the disease, such as epilepsy, and even the virus will be blind because the virus erodes the eye structure. In addition, the surviving puppy often does not grow the teeth because of the lack of the glaze of the teeth; at the same time, the nose and the claws are very common. The healing dogs will continue to spread a small amount of residual virus, so it is best to wait for the dog to wait for at least one month to let the dog contact other animals after returning home with luck.


Everyone knows that the vaccine is to protect the immune globulin by stimulating the immune system of the animal itself. The dogs that have just been born of a dog's mother's first milk will have immunoglobulin from her mother. This part of the remaining immunization will Capability affects the effect of vaccine. Therefore, the puppy is generally immune at the 6 weeks, and it is strengthened every 3-4 weeks until the 16 weeks. After that, it only needs to be immunized once a year. Note that the bitch should not be immune to canine plague heating in the late pregnancy and early breastfeeding.
