What is Canine Herpes Virus Infection?

While CHV is most common in very young puppies, older puppies and adults can contract the virus and survive. Adults can recover without treatment, although they often become lifelong carriers of the virus and are able to infect other dogs. Close contact is required for transmission, as the virus is unstable outside the host. This includes licking, nosing and the spread of infected fluids, as well as the transmission from mother to fetus. Stress and illness can cause a reoccurrence of CHV in previously infected dogs.

The Canine Herpes Virus (CHV) causes a viral infection in puppies and adult dogs, coyotes and wolves. This infection is systemic, most commonly causing upper respiratory infections, lesions that are visible and internal, and genital infections. CHV is most dangerous for in utero and newborn puppies, usually causing death within 48 hours after symptoms appear.

Symptoms of Canine Herpes Virus Infection in Dogs

Symptoms can vary depending on the age of the infected canine.

In puppies, symptoms include:

  • Thick nasal discharge, sometimes bloody
  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Loss of appetite, or a decrease in suckling
  • Loss of body weight
  • Shallow breathing
  • Vomiting
  • Lethargy
  • Diarrhea
  • Pink eye
  • Eye lesions
  • Corneal edema, or swelling
  • Encephalitis, or brain inflammation
  • Dull or depressed behavior
  • Constant crying
  • Restlessness
  • Abdominal pain
  • Shivering
  • Soft, odorless stools that are grayish yellow or green
  • Oral or genital vesicle
  • Skin redness or rash
  • Neurological issues
  • Blindness
  • Absence of a fever
  • Seizures
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Sudden death

Adult dogs show different symptoms that can include:

  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Genital infections, such as vaginal or foreskin inflammations
  • Eye disease, such as conjunctivitis and dendritic corneal ulcers
  • Visible lesions
  • Abortion or stillborn litters in females

Causes of Canine Herpes Virus Infection in Dogs

The cause of canine herpesvirus infection is exposure to the virus. Transmission is from contact with an infected dog by means of:

  • Oral secretions
  • Nasal secretions
  • Genital secretions
  • From infected mother to fetus, or to her newborn puppies

Dogs that are more susceptible are:

  • Pregnant dogs
  • Puppies under 3 weeks of age
  • Dogs with compromised immune systems

Diagnosis of Canine Herpes Virus Infection in Dogs

Diagnosis is often presumed based on a physical examination, the symptoms present, and medical history. Diagnosis and treatment are both dependent on the age of your dog. Blood tests and microscopic examinations can be used to differentiate this infection from other similar ones, and a PCR test on fresh tissue and fluids can be used to detect herpesvirus DNA.

Death occurs in many infected in utero puppies, or puppies between 1 to 3 weeks of age. Cultures collected in post-mortem tests can confirm the presence of CHV, and that diagnosis can alert you to the possible infection of the other littermates and the mother. Lesions can be seen on organs, and the lymph nodes are often enlarged.

Treatment of Canine Herpes Virus Infection in Dogs

Treatment of a canine herpesvirus infection can vary depending on the age of your dog.

In puppies, treatment is often unsuccessful. Many infected puppies die before treatment is sought. If infected puppies are diagnosed before a fatality occurs, then a few steps can be taken.

Antiviral medicines, such as acyclovir, may be beneficial, but unfortunately are often ineffective. An antibody serum from the blood of recovered females may be helpful in reducing deaths in puppies if given before the onset of symptoms. A litter can also be switched to a different female to nurse, one who has been previously infected and tests seropositive for the virus. Keeping the puppies warmed can help, as the virus can’t survive at body temperature. This can be done in incubators. Good hygiene can also reduce puppy deaths.

Prognosis for puppies who survive is guarded due to the damage to internal organs, and they often display persistent neurological issues, such as loss of body control, imbalance, and blindness.

In infected adult dogs, the duration of symptoms is generally short lived, and they often recover without treatment. However, the infection can remain hidden. Recovered adult dogs often become carriers, and can infect others throughout their life. Antiviral drugs may be prescribed. Currently, no vaccine is available in the U.S. or Canada. A vaccine available in Europe has had mixed results.

Recovery of Canine Herpes Virus Infection in Dogs

In puppies, death is generally the result of infection. Puppies infected after 3 weeks of age can show mild symptoms and may recover, possibly with neurological damage. Recovery is good for adult dogs, although they often become lifelong carriers of the virus. The disease can reoccur during stressful times. Recovered females can have future infected or healthy litters, and can also have failed pregnancies.

Prevent infection by avoiding contact with infected puppies and dogs. For pregnant females, ensure she does not get infected in the most dangerous time for her puppies by keeping her away from other dogs 3 weeks before and after giving birth.

I was diagnosed with herpes since I was a child. My mother has them too, and does nothing to stop the spread. it was hard to not kiss my children all the time, but they grow up knowing that “when mommy has a lip owie, she can’t kiss.” They give me kisses on my forehead instead and we have extra hugs. It was also very painful to not kiss my partner. However, I was 100% determined to not pass this on to anyone, especially those I love.I mostly want to thank those who feel the way I do.

Problem Urinating

my wife was given the diagnosis of aggressive Stage III adenocarcinoma. She didn’t know what to do. The urologist made appointments for me and my wife to start radiation, and maybe chemo. Then a friend at the office also told me that he had herpes for years but only Dr lamp herbs could cure his herpes he told me dr lamp herbal cannabis cures cancer and I told my wife about using dr lamp herbs. It just so happened that people are getting cured with dr lamp herbal treatment of astronomical(inoperable brain cancer), we went online and saw alot of reviews about dr lamp's herb. So I decided; rather than die from the medical treatment, my wife and I emailed dr lamp via; ([email protected])
Dr Lamp, cure all;
Cancer No matter what stage,
Infectious Diseases,
Viruses with pure natural herbs. You get cure after complete usage depends on the stage of your illness, yet he cures all with his herbs.
so I email dr lamp for herbal cannabis cure for my prostate biopsy. I received the herbal medicines made of cannabis oil and other herbs from dr lamp. starting from the first 7 days the primary cancer was gone, only minor metastatic lesions were left. At that point I found out my herbs is almost finished so I requested for another one and that last bottle that was sent to me killed off the metastases in the next few days. my wife have a clean lab scan test and the result said no trace of cancer or my wife prostate biopsy.

We think that our new dog might have caninie heroes, but we are not sure yet. We are making an appointment for the dog, but we are scared if he does he has or will spread it to our other three dogs. With canine herpes and treatment will it go away for good or will he still carry it with him. Also how much will it cost to get him tested. His age and breed are unknown, but I could not continue without putting something.

Canine Herpes Virus is dangerous for puppies and causes little to no symptoms in adults; the symptoms you describe maybe due to general infection of the prepuce, allergies, bacterial skin infection etc… A dog may remain infectious for the rest of their life after recovery from symptoms. In addition to a consultation with a Veterinarian, the cost for a test for Canine Herpes Virus would be between $15 and $60 depending on the exact type of test and your location.
