Fighting parvovirus

It seems even the mighty Zeus can use some help fighting a potentially deadly viral disease. Baby Zeus, seen in this photo with Sierra Veterinary Hospital vet tech Sara DeLacy, received a free parvovirus vaccination Friday along with about 100 other canines in the area. The veterinary hospital donated the vaccinations to the Lake Tahoe Humane Society and SPCA to help combat an outbreak of the contagious disease in South Lake Tahoe. Since the outbreak was announced more than a week ago, there have been 23 reported cases of canine parvovirus in the region — two of which have ended in fatalities. DeLacy encourages dog owners to get their pets vaccinated and help prevent the disease, which can be much more expensive to treat, she said. For additional information or parvo-related concerns, the Lake Tahoe Humane Society can be reached at 530-542-2857.
