Canine Parvovirus Monoclonal Antibody

Canine parvovirus, or parvo, is one of the most common causes of illness and death in dogs worldwide.1 While vaccination can help prevent parvo, there have been no antiviral treatment options for dogs who become infected — until now. Canine Parvovirus Monoclonal Antibody (CPMA) is the first and only USDA-conditionally approved, one-dose parvovirus treatment.

Think your dog might have parvovirus? Treatment can’t wait.

Canine parvovirus is a highly contagious disease that destroys the intestinal lining. It can be fatal if not treated quickly. Puppies are at high risk for parvo until they have been fully vaccinated, and unvaccinated dogs are also at risk. If you notice any of the following signs, call your veterinarian immediately and ask about canine parvovirus and CPMA as a potential treatment.

  • Lack of appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Hemorrhagic diarrhea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Lethargy
  • Fever

    Proven effective

    A study of infected dogs who were treated with CPMA showed significantly faster resolution of symptoms including vomiting, lethargy and lack of appetite.3

    Well tolerated in puppies as young as 6 weeks of age

    In a safety study of 147 healthy dogs who received CPMA, CPMA was well tolerated. If a reaction occurred, it was generally mild and recovered within one day.4

What is parvovirus and what does it do?

Parvo is a highly contagious, potentially fatal disease that prevents cells of the intestinal lining from absorbing nutrients, retaining fluids and fighting bacterial infection. It can also target the bone marrow, destroy immune cells and invade the heart cells.

Vaccination is key to protecting your pet

The canine parvovirus vaccine has been recognized as a core vaccine by the American Animal Hospital Association Canine Vaccination Guidelines.10 Effective vaccination with products such as TruCan™ Ultra DAP and TruCan™ DAPPi can help prevent parvovirus infection. Ask your veterinarian for more information.
