Jab call as virus kills five dogs

Five dogs in Cornwall have died after an outbreak of a deadly virus.

The dogs have been hit by a particularly virulent form of the Canine Parvo Virus in St Day, Redruth, Carharrack and Lanner, police said.

Dog owners in Cornwall are being advised to get their pets vaccinated to avoid the virus spreading further.

Any dogs displaying symptoms of severe sickness and diarrhoea and who will not eat or drink should be taken to a vet said Devon and Cornwall Police.
