Fears of pet virus waning



CONCERNS about another outbreak of parvovirus on the Capricorn Coast are waning.

Earlier this month two dogs picked up by Living- stone Shire Council local law officers were euthanased af- ter showing signs of the virus.

Concern was high as an outbreak of the virus at Liv- ingstone Shire's animal shel- ter BARPO in March this year led to 14 cats and dogs being destroyed because of exposure to the disease.

Livingstone Shire Council corporate and community services committee chair- woman Councillor Desley Rial said there had been no further incidents of parvo- virus reported at the animal shelter.

Acacia Veterinary Surgery veterinarian Dr Martin Hack said only a couple more ani- mals had been brought in for testing after reporting four or five cases of the virus this month.
