Early findings suggest a virus previously associated with pigs and not known to affect dogs may be linked to the death of an Ohio dog and may have affected others. The circovirus was found in several California dogs that died this spring. In the meantime, area veterinarians are telling owners not to panic and noting that an association does not indicate causation. However, they say any dog exhibiting symptoms of illness should be evaluated by a veterinarian.
