A virus that is believed to be common in pigs and birds  might be spreading to dogs.  Canine Circovirus may be the deadly illness for dogs in Ohio.  Dr. Ernie Ward says dogs are dying despite aggressive treatment.  So far, experts are baffled.  Research continues.  If your pet becomes ill with vomiting, rapid heart rate, bloody diarrhea or profound weakness, contact your vet immediately.  In the meantime, monitor social media and veterinary news outlets for further updates. http://www.pethealthnetwork.com/lifestyle/new-virus-threatens-dogs-circovirus
