A guide line about Dog diseases

* Rabies (hydrophobia) is a fatal viral disease that can affect any mammal, although the close relationship of dogs with humans makes canine rabies a zoonotic concern. Vaccination of dogs for rabies is commonly required by law. Please see the article dog health for information on this disease in dogs.
* Canine parvovirus is a sometimes fatal gastrointestinal infection that mainly affects puppies. It occurs worldwide.
* Canine coronavirus is a gastrointestinal disease that is usually asymptomatic or with mild clinical signs. The signs are worse in puppies.
* Canine distemper is an often fatal infectious disease that mainly has respiratory and neurologic signs.
* Canine influenza is a newly emerging infectious respiratory disease. Up to 80 percent of dogs infected will have symptoms, but the mortality rate is only 5 to 8 percent.
* Infectious canine hepatitis is a sometimes fatal infectious disease of the liver.
* Canine herpesvirus is an infectious disease that is a common cause of death in puppies less than three weeks old.
* Pseudorabies is an infectious disease that primarily affects swine, but can also cause a fatal disease in dogs with signs similar to rabies.
* Canine minute virus is an infectious disease that can cause respiratory and gastrointestinal signs in young puppies.
