Taipei Local Time


Canine parvovirus (CPV) is among the most common causes of gastrointestinal illness, especially in young puppies and unvaccinated dogs. CPV is resistant to temperature & pH changes and to common disinfectants & detergents, helping it to survive for months to years in the environment. CPV infections lead to high morbidity and mortality rates in young dogs worldwide. This makes it essential for veterinarians and pet owners to understand the cause, symptoms, and complications of the disease to take the proper curative action.

This webinar will discuss the following:
→ The cause and clinical signs of CPV infection in dogs
→ Tests and diagnoses of CPV
→ Treatment and prevention measures


Dr. Indira Putri Negari received her MSc in Animal Physiology from Gadjah Mada University (UGM), Indonesia, and completed her doctoral degree research in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering from National Central University, Taiwan. She has also earned a veterinary diploma (in Veterinary/Animal Health Technology/Technician and Veterinary Assistant) from UGM, Indonesia. A core animal lover, Dr. Indira is always curious to learn and understand more about animal physiology and behavior. At present, Dr. Indira is working as Technical Support Specialist with Bioguard Corporation in Taiwan.

The Importance of Heartworm Prevention for Dogs

Image description

Heartworms are a serious threat to dogs, and prevention is essential to protect your furry friend from this potentially deadly disease. Heartworm disease is caused by parasitic worms that are transmitted through mosquito bites. This article will discuss the importance of heartworm prevention and the steps you can take to keep your dog safe.

The Dangers of Heartworms

Heartworms are parasitic worms that live in the heart and lungs of dogs, causing severe health problems and, if left untreated, can be fatal. The worms grow in the heart and lungs, causing respiratory distress, heart failure, and organ damage. Symptoms of heartworm disease include coughing, lethargy, weight loss, and breathing difficulties. Unfortunately, many dogs do not show symptoms until the disease has progressed, making early detection and treatment essential.

Prevention is Key

Preventing heartworm disease is much easier than treating it. The best way to prevent heartworm disease is through medication and mosquito control. Several medications are available, including monthly pills, topical treatments, and injectable medications. These medications kill heartworm larvae before they can mature into adult worms. Mosquito control is also essential in preventing heartworm disease. Mosquitoes are the primary carriers of heartworms, so reducing your dog's exposure to mosquitoes can significantly reduce its risk of infection. This can be done by eliminating standing water, using mosquito repellent, and keeping your dog indoors during peak mosquito hours.

Treatment and Recovery

If your dog has been diagnosed with heartworm disease, treatment is essential. Treatment involves several rounds of medication to kill the adult worms, which can take several months. Your dog must be monitored closely during this time and may require hospitalization. Once the adult worms are eliminated, your dog must be kept quiet and may require additional medication to help recover.

Preventing Re-infection

Preventing re-infection is also crucial in keeping your dog healthy. This can be done by administering heartworm prevention medication year-round and reducing your dog's exposure to mosquitoes. Regular check-ups with your veterinarian can also help detect any potential re-infection early, so prompt treatment can be provided.

In conclusion, heartworm disease is a severe and potentially deadly disease that can be prevented with medication and mosquito control. Prevention is much easier and less costly than treatment, so protecting your dog is essential. Regular check-ups with your veterinarian can help detect any potential heartworm disease early, so prompt treatment can be provided. Your furry friend can live long and healthy lives with proper prevention and treatment.

Feline herpesvirus and calicivirus infections:

All veterinarians are aware of the acute and chronic upper respiratory tract disease caused by feline herpesvirus (FHV) and feline calicivirus (FCV). Clinical signs for both infections include nasal discharge, sneezing, conjunctivitis, depression, anorexia, fever, and hypersalivation. Chronic rhinitis/sinusitis will cause further damage to the respiratory tract epithelium and the nasal turbinate.

FHV is more often associated with corneal ulceration and FCV with oral ulceration. However, it is not easy to distinguish the pathogens based on clinical signs alone, and mixed infections are common.

Bioguard Corporation provides a reliable solution through its susceptible FHV/FCV Antigen combo test if you suspect your cat may have mixed infections. With High sensitivity and specificity, this rapid test can quickly and accurately diagnose Feline herpesvirus and calicivirus infections.
