Infectious Canine Hepatitis (ICH) is caused by the virus, canine adenovirus 1 (CAV-1). The main route of infection is ingestion of urine, feces, or saliva of infected dogs.
Signs of infection vary from slight fever to sudden death. The mortality rate is highest in young dogs. Corneal clouding (“blue eye”) can result after recovery.
|Our priority now is on housing the remaining 16 dogs from the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, many of whom have owners, but who are unable to take them back. The area (land) where the Earthquake dogs are now housed, has been rented for many years but now due to changing circumstances of the owners, is due to be returned to them. That means there is some urgency in building new kennels for them in Sasayama. Your continuing support is appreciated.|
