CPV or Canine Parvovirus is a highly contagious disease. It is caused by a virus and it affects dogs. It can manifest itself in two different forms. Most commonly it is represented by the intestinal form, with symptoms as vomiting, weight loss, diarrhea, and lack of appetite. Luckily, there is a vaccine for prevention of this infectious disease. However, sometimes it happens that dogs get vaccine reactions with symptoms similar to actually being infected. Here is a chart where you can see the differences between a dog with parvo and with vaccine reaction.
