Canine circovirus infections have recently been found in some dogs exhibiting symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea. According to the AVMA, the distribution of the virus in the U.S. is not yet known, but infected dogs were reported in California and circovirus may be related to the recent illness and loss of dogs in Ohio.

Circoviruses are small viruses that infect pigs and birds, and may be transmitted to other animals. For more information, the AVMA has a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page for your reference. Click here to go to their FAQ.
