Outpatient Parvo Program

October 2016

Audience: Executive Leadership, Shelter/Rescue Staff & Volunteers, Veterinary Team

Canine parvovirus outbreaks can cost dogs’ lives in the community as well as inside the walls of the local animal shelter. Private treatment is out of the financial reach of the very dog owners most likely to have parvo-stricken dogs – those with low incomes and little access to veterinary care. The good news is that a recent study at the Pennsylvania SPCA (PSPCA), funded by Maddie’s Fund®, demonstrated that outpatient care for parvo can save almost all affected dogs and a lot of money, too.
