Trial Results Promising For Curing Puppies' Parvo

Trial Results Promising For Curing Puppies' Parvo
GRAND FORKS, ND -

A North Dakota company plans to market a treatment for a highly contagious viral disease that can be life-threatening for dogs.

Grand Forks-based Avianax is testing its cure for the canine parvovirus in seven states around the country. Results have shown a 90 percent rate among nearly 50 puppies that have been treated.

Some puppies die from the virus and others are euthanized because the medicine needed to treat it can be too expensive and take too long.

Avianax officials hope to start selling the parvoONE antibody-based treatment for $75 a dose by next spring.

The antibody was discovered about 10 years ago when researchers from the University of North Dakota partnered with a South Dakota farm to find a treatment for West Nile virus in geese.
