"We're new to town and read the reviews for Dr Price and decided to Windmill a go. So happy we did! Their whole office from the front desk to the treatment and meeting Dr Price was 5 Star all the way! I know our babies will be well taken care of! I even had a technician help me out to the car which made my day as I had my hands FULL! Would recommend to anyone! "

"This is the best vet in Abilene! I have tried countless other veterinary clinics and Windmill out-does them all. They value my pet and my experience more than my money, and they are always showing care and compassion to both my dog and me. They even call after every appointment, just to check-up and make sure we're doing okay! AMAZING service and incredible people!"

Your puppy is due for its 4th Parvovirus vaccination.  Canine Parvovirus Enteritis is a highly contagious and usually fatal viral infection of the digestive tract. It causes severe vomiting and foul, bloody diarrhea.  Parvo first appeared in 1978; it was a dreaded scourge of all dog owners and breeders until reliable vaccines were developed in the late 1980's. 

Parvo presents a unique difficulty with regards to getting puppies protected against it:   like all mammals, puppies receive protective antibodies from their mothers in the colostrum, or first milk, that they receive in the first 48 hours of life.  These antibodies last anywhere from 6-16 weeks.  Most maternal antibodies do not interfere with a puppy's response to vaccination; however, unfortunately, maternal Parvovirus antibodies will effectively block a puppy's vaccine response.  As long as a puppy has high levels of maternal Parvovirus antibodies circulating in its bloodstream, the puppy WON'T be able to make its OWN antibodies to Parvovirus.  Since the maternal Parvovirus antibodies wear off when anywhere from 6 to 16 weeks after birth, puppies need to receive FOUR Parvovirus vaccinations:  6 weeks, 10 weeks, 14 weeks, and 18 weeks. With such a vaccine program, you can be assured that your puppy will be properly protected against this dreaded disease!
