Canine coronavirus disease, known as CCoV, is a highly infectious intestinal infection in dogs, usually puppies. Canine coronavirus is usually short-lived but may cause severe abdominal pain for a few days in infected dogs. The virus is from the Coronaviridae family. There are many types of coronavirus, each affecting different animal species, including humans.
Canine coronavirus (CCoV) is not the same virus as SARS-CoV-2 that causes the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). CCoV does not affect people. CCoV causes gastrointestinal problems in dogs, as opposed to respiratory disease.
How is canine coronavirus transmitted?Most cases of canine coronavirus are contracted by oral contact with infected fecal matter. A dog may also become infected by eating from contaminated food bowls or by direct contact with an infected dog. It's more important than ever to the health of your pets and family to keep dog fecal matter cleaned up as quickly as possible. Call us we can help take the burden off of you!
