Canine circovirus, deadly!

I just read a couple of articles on this virus and wanted to post here so everyone here can also read about it and maybe help your pets or others.

Thanks for the warning but...here is a slightly less alarming post by a veterinarian:

It sounds like they aren't even entirely sure circovirus is the problem, and that the dogs had to be in close proximity to other sick dogs to get it.

It's still a concern, and sounds pretty awful
