Description:This image depicts a frontal view of a dog’s head, which is exhibiting symptoms of an illness diagnosed as canine distemper virus (CDV). Symptoms included inflammation and discharge from both eyes, also known as conjunctivitis, and a discharge of infectious mucus from the dog’s nose.
CDV is disease caused by a viral organism, which is a member of the genus Morbillivirus, and is therefore, closely related to the same virus that causes measles in humans. There are a number of vaccines for dogs, which can prevent your pet from being infected, and in fact, in some regions, is a mandatory protocol to owning a dog.
