The City of Lake Forest Park was notified Wednesday, March 29, 2017, of a stray dog that was picked up at Pfingst Animal Acres park, 17435 Brookside Blvd NE, Lake Forest Park, and taken to PAWS, where it tested positive for the Parvo virus.
This is extremely contagious and can be transmitted when in contact with an infected dog’s feces. To view more about Parvo and symptoms please visit WebMD.
From WebMD: Highly resistant, the virus can live in the environment for months, and may survive on inanimate objects such as food bowls, shoes, clothes, carpet and floors.
This is a good time to make sure your dogs are up-to-date on their vaccinations, and always, pick up after them!
