Dog Diseases on the Rise
Two things that dogs are vaccinated for have been detected in Bandera County. the Bandera Bulletin reports canine parvovirus and canine distemper are in the midst of a resurgence, and pet owners are encouraged to stay on top of vaccinations. The spike in cases is attributed to the large number of unvaccinated pets and strays in the area. Puppies as young as 5-to-6-weeks-old can receive their first series of shots.
