Blood Tests

Parvovirus Canino (CPC-CCV),

CPV is diagnosed with a physical examination, biochemical tests, urine analysis, abdominal radiographs, and abdominal ultrasounds. A chemical blood profile and a complete blood cell count will also be performed. Low white blood cell levels are indicative of CPV infection, especially in association with bloody stools. Biochemical and urine analysis may reveal elevated liver enzymes, lymphopenia, and electrolyte imbalances.

Where do donations go?

The municipal government has a limited budget to run the Puerto Vallarta animal shelter. Basically they pay for property taxes, electricity and water bill and the salary of most of the staff. Thanks to your donations to organizations Friends of Puerto Vallarta Animals and Dog 4 Life as well as the occasional direct-to-the-centre private and corporate donations, medicines, food, cleaning supplies, etc. for the dogs and cats are bought on a regular basis. This page shows you how some of the donations are spent.
