Parvovirus is a highly contagious DNA-containing virus. The virus is very stable in the environment, able to withstand wide pH ranges and high temperatures. It is resistant to a number of common disinfectants and may survive for several months in contaminated areas. It can be especially severe in puppies or kittens that are not protected by maternal antibodies or vaccination. In the sever stage of infection, animals can die within 48 to 72 hours if not treated with fluid or antibiotics.
