SR, I was reading about this yesterday. Sounds like parvo symptoms to me. I hope something can be done to keep it from spreading in to other areas of the U.S. Thanks for sharing.

I tried reading up on this but it is confusing. I don't think the vets know what is happening yet and the media is doing some poorly researched reporting (as if that is new). It is not nearly as deadly as the linked report implies. Nevertheless it can be.

It just means anyone whose dog has diarhha or vomit really should not delay going to the vet.
