Here Are The Most Common Puppy Illnesses To Watch Out For According To The Experts


Our dogs can’t tell us when they don’t feel well, so it’s important to be familiar with the most common puppy illnesses. Jennifer Bruns, DVM, MPVM at PetSmart Veterinary Services, tells LittleThings, “The most common puppy illnesses include parvo, kennel cough, and external parasites, such as fleas, roundworm, and hook- and whipworms. While all contagious illnesses pose a threat, parvo and distemper tend to be the ones that give us concern, as the puppies become very sick, and [the diseases] can cause death.”
