Busy Bunnies
Given what bunnies need to stay active, these fluffy, nose-twitching animals are affectionate and engaging pets. Kept in a barren cage or hutch and deprived of exercise and mental stimulation, however, they're not just boring, they're bored -- not to mention unhappy and unhealthy.

5 Parvo: the Physical Illness and its Treatment
Treatment for parvoviral infection centers on supportive care. This means that the clinical problems that come up in the course of the infection are addressed individually with the goal of keeping the patient alive long enough for an immune response to generate. We do not have effective antiviral drugs and must rely on the patientís immune system for cure.

Cauda Equina Syndrome (Lumbosacral Stenosis)
The most common symptom is pain. Treating lumbosacral stenosis depends on the cause and severity of the symptoms.

3 The Virus in the Environment/Disinfection
Because the canine parvovirus is not enveloped in fat the way the distemper virus is, canine parvovirus is especially hardy in the environment. It is readily carried on shoes or clothing to new areas (which accounts for its rapid worldwide spread shortly after its original appearance). It is able to survive freezing temperatures in the ground during winter, plus many household disinfectants are not capable of killing it indoors.

VetzInsight: A Different Place to Learn
The same folks who provide Veterinary Partner also offer a blog called VetzInsight. Rather than explain what occurs in a disease process and how to treat it - which was Veterinary Partner offers - our goal is not only to inform on larger issues but to tap into the numerous emotions at play within the human-animal bond. We're here to learn and have fun. If you're interested in learning more about a broader look at veterinary medicine, the veterinarians, the clients, and the patients, VetzInsight is a great learning experience.
