Deadly #ParvoVirus Prompts Free #Vaccinations In #Severn, #Maryland, #USA
Three dogs in the Severn area have died of parvovirus in recent months, so Anne Arundel County health officials will offer free dog vaccinations on Tuesday, Oct. 15. Owners can bring their pets to the parking lot at the corner of Arwell Court and Pioneer Drive from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m.
Authorities say parvo is a highly contagious disease that makes dogs extremely sick and is usually fatal. Even though it is not dangerous to humans, it is extremely contagious among dogs.
To help protect the dogs of Still Meadows and The Orchards communities, Anne Arundel County Animal Care and Control and the health department are offering free shots for parvovirus and/or rabies. Dogs should be on leash and under control. Owner identification is required for vaccination certificates.
