GI Disease & Circovirus (November 2013)
There have been recent cases of severe gastrointestinal disease in dogs which may include a virus called circovirus. Experts across the country are studying both the presence and significance of the virus in these cases. At this time, there is neither data to incriminate the virus as a causative factor, nor readily available testing to confirm the virus is present. At [our clinic] we are staying abreast of the data as it becomes available. Additionally we are treating our patients and educating our clients appropriately. If your dog begins to vomit, has bloody diarrhea, or is suddenly very lethargic please call [your vet] for an appointment immediately.
