BRAZIL, Ind. (WTHI) - Animal experts in the Wabash Valley say they are on high alert.
That's as the number of dogs with the parvo-virus infection has risen.
News 10 spoke with leaders at the Clay County Humane Society.
They told us this year alone...seven dogs have died in connection to this virus. Last year...no dogs died of this infection.
So far, the shelter has seen at least 20 cases this year.
